Wine Review: This wine was very popular at a charity tasting I recently hosted. This dark red wine opens with a dark berry bouquet that is quite fresh. On the palate, the wine is very well balanced. The wine has great dark berry fruit flavors and nice acidity integration. This wine is calling for a nice grilled steak. The finish is dry and very prolonged. Enjoy, we did. – Ken

Winemaker Notes: Our inaugural Red wine blend saw a vintage where high temperatures presented a challenge to many growers. Fortunately, our diligent sustainable farming promoted balance vines and evenly ripened fruit that continued to mature in step with each other resulting in an intense but measured wine. This vintage is chracterized by super-ripe aromas and flavors of plum, cassis and black cherry. The wine is luscious and smooth with solid tannin structure. the tasting experience is enhanced by an exotic spiciness - a character that seems to epitomize our vineyards.
