It’s more about per­son­al­ity than depth, but what a per­son­al­ity it is. Game, milk cof­fee, black pep­per and tobacco notes add am­ple in­ter­est to the core of black cherry. Spice bomb. Fine fin­gers of tan­nin. Im­pres­sive in its own way. CM 14% alc. This was such a great vin­tage from our Or­ange vine­yard. This par­tic­u­lar par­cel of fruit dis­played great bal­ance and in­ten­sity as must, so we de­cided to do ex­tended mac­er­a­tion post-fer­men­ta­tion to achieve greater depth and for com­plex­ity of the regional char­ac­ters. Ev­ery year, you cross your fin­gers for grapes like this be­cause they don’t come around very of­ten!
