Hand-harvested before dawn to ensure cold fruit arrives at the winery, the grapeswere hand-sorted and gently destemmed into an open top tank. The skins were held in contact with the wine for 15 days during fermentation, and then drained to 100% French oak barrels. (40% new) The wine was racked once in the spring and aged over 16 months before being bottled. The wine received an additional year of bottle aging before release.

Fresh-picked raspberries and cherry-spearmint soda aromas float from the glass. Intricate nuances in the nose of cran-apple and orange rind. Fresh and textural on the entry, spiced fruit essences and toasted pastries tease and excite the palate. Strawberry and cranberry flavors mix in a complex balance of acidity and fruit flavors. The unusually long finish reveals different layers of flavors wrapped in a warm blanket of sweet oak.Winemaker Brandon Lapides
