Deep aromatics of wild-grown ripe blackberry are fused with an inviting mineral essence and traces of forest floor. Buoyant acidity delivers robust flavors of brambly berry, spicy cedar and minerality. Rich mocha and oak notes appear mid-palate, integrating as the wine expands across the lengthy finish. Delicious now, this wine will develop further elegance and grace with additional bottle aging.
Ideal to pair with prosciutto-wrapped beef tenderloin, pasta carbonara, or cheese and sausage stuffed portobello mushrooms.
Aged 20 months in 75% new French oak, 25% in twice used French oak.
