About This Wine

Color: intense, rich black currant with touches of geranium on the rim

On the nose: explosion of blueberries, rose, cedar and chocolate covered cherries lingering on ashes and roast beef

On the palate: silky entrance evolving on soft but dense tannic structure with notes of cherry, plum and touches of peach and bergamot

Wine Profile

Blend: 100% Petite Syrah

Winemaker Notes:

" 2012 proved to be a unique but outstanding vintage. This is not because of frost, heat or rain, but mainly due to bountiful harvest. The growing season was ideal with no frost, a mild spring, and a very temperate, long growing season. This allowed all varietals to ripen to their optimum condition with significant concentration and complexity. The biggest challenge was the management of the tannin structure of the very thick-skinned red vintage. This meant winemakers who simply applied recipes had a challenging year as tannins were at twice the average level. "

- Jean Hoefliger
