This Single Vineyard wine comes from a newly discovered terroir - an untouched plateau rich with Indian cement that imparts a unique minerality to the usually fruity varietal.
On the nose, marked floral profile characteristics of this property, as well as the typical notes of the varietal: plums and fresh red fruit with floral notes and a subtle touch of spices from the local flora. A complex & balanced wine with a mineral texture and long finish.
Pair with slow-braised short ribs, bacon-wrapped dates, or spicy cheeses.
This red has a beautiful nose of flowers and blackberry jam. After aeration, it offers hints of rosemary. On the palate, concentrated black-fruit and toasted oak flavors are backed by fresh acidity and firm tannins. The finish is long and exhibits tobacco notes.Wine Enthusaist December 2022
This shows some ripe berries, dried herbs, licorice, chocolate and hint of toffee caramel. Medium-bodied with firm tannins and crisp acidity. Juicy and savory with a flavorful finish.James Suckling May 2022
