Meticulous vineyard management, hand picked and sorting presented the winery with spectacular fruit in pristine condition.

Tasting Notes

See

Dense hue with fresh purple rim.

Smell

Ripe fruit, plum with a hint of dark cherry. Toasty oak compliments the fruit giving depth on the nose.

Taste

Concentrated and vibrant fruit leads to fine expressive oak wrapping the dense tannins, a soft acidity completes the long finish.
