Winemaker Notes

The climate of our estate vineyards, being similar to Garnacha’s homeland in northern Spain, produces fruit with expressive cherry, raspberry, violet, lavender and savory aromas. The ripe fruits broadcast themselves across the palate while the tannic structure and lively acidity create this lovely wine that will improve over the next four to five years. Pairings include roasted vegetable medley with thick cut bacon.
