Restitution Red

Deep aromas of chocolate, filter-brewed dark-roast coffee and ripe blackberries. A rich mid-palate, chewy tannins and a long finish.

WINEMAKING NOTES

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.

FOOD PAIRING

Luscious with rabbit in juniper berry sauce or any big red meat.
