Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
Red cherry, raspberry and cooked strawberry aromas frame this intensely aromatic wine. These are joined by the signature savory notes of Carmenere – black pepper, star anise, and mint. Maturation in French oak barrels has imparted subtle baking spice and vanilla flavors. The palate is rich and warming, and well balanced by the cranberry like fresh acidity. A blanket of fine-grained tannins suggests this wine will continue to drink well over the next 6-8 years.
Vineyard Notes
After a late start to spring, the 2017 summer was both warm and dry, leading to small and highly concentrated berries. A cool August and September followed, which allowed the grapes to retain intense fruit aromatics and fresh natural acidity. Due to the slow cool ripening after veraison, each individual parcel of fruit could be harvested at peak ripeness.
