SILVER MEDAL, Sommelier's Choice Awards 2020

A classic for this AVA with aromas of violet, briar, wild blackberry and cinnamon that lead to flavors of blackberry preserves, red currants, sarsaparilla, baking spices, wintergreen and toasted oak. Restrained tannins offer good structure. A long, lingering finish. 

A wine that loves comfort foods and rich flavor proles. Enjoy with brisket, short ribs or any well-marbled red meat alongside a heap of grilled vegetables.

Wine Profile
Production Notes
100% Malolactic fermentation. Aged 20 months in 30% new oak and 70% 1-3 year old French oak barrels.
Winemaker Notes
2017 began with high rainfall across most AVAs. Temperature differences with high heat spells in some areas meant irregular ripening times. Extra attention was paid to canopy management and a staggered harvest helped match intense ripeness with good flavor and acidity. A challenging, rewarding vintage in winemaking.
