A blend of Funk (60%) and Watermill vineyards—both in The Rocks, this wine opens with brooding aromas of crushed flowers, plum, coffee, funk and tapenade, along with meaty undertones. The palate is soft and silky but full in feel, providing a lot of texture that keeps the interest high. The finish lingers.
