Tasting Notes
The wine has a dark ruby red core moving to pink and light garnet hues on the rim. The nose is classic and pure exhibiting traits of Right Bank Bordeaux where this varietal is most famously grown within France. The nose is beautifully balanced and earth driven with aromas of freshly picked red currants, red plums, dried leather, bay leaf, red tobacco leaf, cedar box, wet violets and dried clay with a touch of baking spices. The palate is medium plus in body with a kiss of perceived sweetness to the fruit. Flavors on the palate confirm the nose with just ripened fruit flavors of red and black plums, tart red cherries, leather, green tobacco and a touch new oak.
Vineyard Notes
We consider Zayante Vineyard one of the most treasured partnerships. Greg Nolton is a very skilled farmer. His vines are dry farmed and everything is organic. Greg grows his vines using old world methods that many modern day vintners may frown upon, but for us it is magic. The wines come out so expressive of his site that it is quite stunning, and the dry farming leads to unparalleled intensity.
