The fruit for this wine has come from the same block of the site since 2009. Winemaker James Hall shows his ability to coax brambly flavor from a complexity of ginger spice, chocolate and generous tannin, managing to retain enough acidity to add a youthful freshness that's memorable on the finish. Drink now through 2024.
