This is a new vineyard designation for Sineann, and stands out for its dark plum hue and its distinctly herbal nose. The scents are of herb and tomato leaf more than sweet fruit, but the flavors are Burgundian and earthy, with well-managed layering. Young vines, tough weather, yields tannins that are slightly grainy and taste again like clean earth.
