Winemaker Notes
“Notes of raspberry, dried rose petals, and black tea immediately jump from the glass. Potpourri notes combine with dried orange peel to add to the wonderful complexity on the nose, while wood spices and anise round out the aromatics. Flavors of black cherry and smoky herbs come through on the palate with a strong sensation of black tea and citrus peel. This 2017 offering showcases the vintage with a medium-bodied texture and a refined tannin structure, owing to the warm growing season. The grapes were able to achieve full maturity and maintain fresh fruit aromas and flavors with enough acid to frame the palate. This wine would pair well with a cedar plank king salmon with a miso glaze.”
