One of several limited-block selections, this particular cuvée is 100% Pommard clone. The lush fruit core contains a generous mix of flavors—candied orange peel, candied ginger and chocolate cherries. The tannins have a breakfast tea character, and everything is smoothly melded and ready for immediate enjoyment.
