Deep ruby. Classic notes of black currant, sweet raspberry, cedar and lavender shine in the nose. The nearby sagebrush in the vineyard adds a savory, fresh note. Blackberry compote, wild thyme and orange Creamsicle complete the aromatics. Soft, round and plump on the palate with black plum, graphite and vanilla upfront. Layers of black and red currant fill the mouth with a creamy and lush weight. Brilliant acids and fine, savory tannins fill out the back end. A supple and complete wine showing fun flavors of red licorice, wild mountain huckleberry and cassis. Spiced black tea flavors drive home the lush, textured finish. A real joy to drink.
Drink now through 2033.
