Tasting Notes

The 2019 vintage has rich concentrated aromas of black cherry, cedar, and mocha that lead into flavors of raspberry, chocolate, cherry, and vanilla. The wine is bold and bright and was created to enjoy now, or for many years to come as it will age gracefully.

Food Pairings

Dry rubbed boneless pork ribs, prime rib with shiitake mushroom risotto, and herb roasted chicken and grilled spiced cauliflower.


76% Merlot and 24% Cabernet Sauvignon
The wine aged for 20 months with racking occurring at three month intervals.
The wine was placed into 100% French oak - 32% new barrels - where it underwent malolactic fermentation.
