New Release

Elegant, plush, and backed by power and grace.  The nose pushes notes of ripe plum, sweet maple-cured bacon, lavender, five-spice, and blueberry.  The palate is lush with cherry pipe tobacco, blackberry, raspberry held together by mineral overtones and fresh acidity.  This is a knife and fork style wine, mouth-filling and concentrated with chewy but fine structure with a long, mouth coating finish.

If there ever was a wine that deserved a steak or burger, you just found it.
Their previous vintage scored 94 Points and sold out in a flash.
This is a most excellent red wine, and not much is available.

Winemaking
All work is done by hand: from leaf-pulling and green drop, to harvesting into half-ton bins. Once the growing season is over, the fruit is gently crushed into 2 ton open top fermenter with 30% whole cluster inclusion with a 5 day cold soak, where it underwent a slow, cool fermentation with 2-3 gentle punch downs per day. When fermentation is complete they pump the juice into French barrels, where they finish secondary fermentation and gently age for 20 months. As with many of their wines, they're inspired by the great wine-growing regions of France, where minimal manipulation allows the elegance of the terroir to be most fully expressed.
