Bright, lifted aromas of fresh blueberry, black cherries and dark red fruit dominate the aromas, while secondary notes of cinnamon, baking spice and granite provide depth and complexity. On the palate, the entry is broad and full, with a consistent sense of density throughout the mouthfeel. The long finish offers a texture of lush, silky tannins that will provide the ability to age this wine for the next 12-15 years.
– Celia Welch, winemaker
