Deep aromas of chocolate, filter-brewed dark-roast coffee and ripe blackberries. A rich mid-palate, chewy tannins and a long finish.
In order to ensure the highest quality fruit, late-ripening clusters were dropped at veraison so that those remaining could ripen uniformly. The grapes were carefully hand-harvested and the berries de-stemmed prior to the 12-day fermentation. Malolactic occurred in barrique, and the wine was racked four times then bottled without fining.
Luscious with rabbit in juniper berry sauce or any big red meat.
