In a nutshell:
An intense and concentrated wine made with the archetypal grape of California.
Low yielding vines ranging in age from 60 to 80 years old are used here; they're all dry farmed, no irrigation, and give small concentrated clusters of grapes which reach a high degree of richness. The result is a big and bold wine filled wth rich, ripe fruits and sweet spice yet with a nicely vibrant feel and a touch of Black Forest Gateau. Sensitive use of American oak in which the wine spends 12 months gives the finished product the ideal balance and delicious, softly spicy finish.
When to drink:
Superbely mouthfilling, this is just great with top quality grilled or barbecued sausages.
Suitable for Vegans
