This wine is a blend of fruit from Klipsun, Kiona, Bacchus, Red Willow and Sagemoor vineyards. Aged in half-new French oak, it offers aromas of dried leaf, cocoa, cigar box and barrel spice that lead to focused, slightly compact cherry flavors. Firm, tightly wound tannins provide support. It needs time in the cellar to stretch its legs, and will be best after 2021.
