A beautifully expressive wine; medium ruby-black in color with a captivating nose of sweet raspberry, blackberry, and blueberry, with notes of milk chocolate, floral perfumes, dried cranberry, tar and charcoal. On the palate, the wine shows the same pure concentrated fruit flavors filled out with notes of black tea and orange rind with a hint rose petal. Soft and rich, with a beautiful, broad mid palate, the wine’s fruit and spice notes continue to build through the long, long finish. Inspired by the great wines of France’s Chateauneuf du Pape, this is a unique Californian interpretation of one of the World’s greatest grapes.
