Classic upfront cassis, mulberry and dark plum with notes of cigar box and licorice. Firm, ripe tannin supports the rich midpalate and elegant pepper spice finish. The wine was gravity fed to 80% new, 10% second fill and 10% third fill 225 liter French oak barrels for secondary Malolactic fermentation. After 12 months of maturation the component cultivars were blended together and racked back to barrel for a further 6 months of integration. The specially selected barrels were lightly filtered prior to bottling.
14.5% ABV Certified Organic.
