Winemaker: Jeff Grier. This MCC offers upfront mature notes of toasted hazelnut, grilled apple, toasted nut and rancio. The palate is full, with a creamy mousse and rich flavors of baked apple, spiced orange rind and salted peanut brittle. The long, evolving finish takes you through notes of orchard fruit followed by oaky spice and finally a hint of mushroom.
