Rich and unusual. Notes of rhubarb and blood orange leap from the glass, followed by a medley of floral and earthy aromas. Rose petals, violets, and forest floor meld with nutmeg, cinnamon, and sweet tobacco leaf. Expansive tannins round out a bold and charismatic wine.

Production Notes
Harvested in early September. The grapes were hand-sorted and destemmed before primary fermentation in small open-top bins. Fermented with wild yeast and punched down by hand three times a day for three weeks. Next the wine was gently pressed off the skins in our basket presses and transferred to American and Hungarian oak barrels to complete malolactic fermentation. Aged in barrel for fourteen months and then racked off the lees and blended. The wine was barrel-conditioned another two months. Prior to bottling we blended in Petite Sirah, also from our estate vineyards, and the wine was bottled in early March of 2016.
