Violets, raspberries, leather, spice, and then more violets. Notes of ginger and blackcurrant. The elegance of this wine separates it from the other two in the set more even than geography. Fine textured, poised, and intense, with further layers to emerge with maturity.
Sourced entirely from Block 4 at our Black Sheep Vineyard the incredible lift of this wine is in part due to the deep sand in which these vines have thrived. These old, gnarly, and twisted grape trees look nothing at all like the pretty, delicate fl orals in the wine they produce.
