A fruit forward, spicy red blend
Hand picked, hand sorted, lots of Gamay Noir, Merlot and Pinot Noir were destemmed and whole berry fermented in small 1 ton open topped fermenters using selected yeast strains. The ferments were punched down 4-6 times daily by hand and then pressed directly into older French oak barrels. After malolactic fermentation the wines were aged for an additional 6 months on fine lees before being blended, lightly fined with egg whites, filtered and bottled. Drink now and over the next 3-4 years.
Bright cherry, red berry fruit and spicy notes of pepper.
Pie cherries and red berry fruit with a dash of black pepper that lingers in the finish.
Bright juicy fruit makes this wine extremely versatile with foods. Roasted herb chicken, a classic margarita pizza, or Mom's spaghetti and meat balls will all taste better with this wine!
