Our vineyards are cared for by hand and gently hand-harvested.
A fragrant nose of red and black wild berries, cranberries, wildflowers, clove, and fresh forest. This has a wonderful mouthfeel, round and silky on the palate; rich yet elegant. Flavors of pomegranate, cranberries, and black cherries lead to a long, complex finish. It's richer and denser than the '09 but not heavy handed.
