Aromas of brambleberry lift from the glass as blackberry, green tea and baking chocolate entice the palate. A finish of lavender and pink peppercorn moves into a luscious acidity.
This wine will age beautifully for 20 years.
About The 2016 Vintage
With abundant rains in the winter, followed by plenty of filtered light in the spring and early summer, the 2016 vintage saw near perfect growing conditions. Bud break occurred a bit late, but yielded a very even fruit set with such moderate temperatures. Summer brought bright sun and cool evenings for lovely extended ripening and consistency into the fall.
