Longtime Claiborne & Churchill winemaker Coby Parker-Garcia releases his own project with exemplary results. This bottling shows aromas of cherry leather with dried sage, black slate, Earl Grey tea and elderflower. There's amazing herbal and floral intricacy to the palate, with concentrated cranberry skins, lavender and purple fruit flavors.
