Winemaker Notes

Combining multiple varietal wines in differing proportions to create a blend that is greater than the sum of its parts is both a challenge and a pleasure. This particular blend accentuates the fresh fruit tones and rich mouthfeel while elevating beautiful  aromatics of dark fruits, plums, and warm spices. This smooth, moderately tannic Mediterranean style blend, while excellent now, will continue to improve over the next three to five years.
