A blend of our 3 vineyards, the wine is our highest quality with such a great vintage. The qualities of each 3 vineyards show through making this wine complex and early appeal. Less new oak allows the wine to shine earlier than the vineyard designates. Wine was aged for 10 months in oak barrels and bottled in August of 2010.
This beautiful vintage shows ripe cherry and all berry fruit with great texture & length.
The blend offers soft spice and floral notes with red & black berry fruits from each of the vineyards included.
