Wine Review: This midnight purple colored wine opens with an intense bouquet featuring pencil lead and black currant with hints of oak. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied with integrated acidity. The mouthfeel is nicely balanced and smooth. The flavor profile is a stony minerality and blueberry blend with notes of cassis. We also detected hints of licorice and black cherry. The finish is dry, and its well managed tannins build-up for a bit and stick around for quite a while. The Tasting Panel would pair this wine with a New York strip steak. Enjoy – KWGTP

Winemaker Notes: The color is dark, a deep and intense ruby color with incredible density. The nose is delicate and very complex. With aeration, the nose reveals aromas of black fruit and white flowers accompanied by subtle smoky notes. On the palate, the attack is full with exceptional aromatic richness. Powerful and silky, it offers incredible length and finesse. A classy, elegant and very precise wine that perfectly reflects the signature of our terroir.
