This is the inaugural release from this winery. Forty percent of the wine was aged for a remarkable nine months on skins, with an equal amount aged in stainless steel and the rest in neutral oak. It dazzles with brooding aromas of herbs and black cherry. The flavors are ripe and succulent, backed by firm but well integrated tannins and a solid finish.
