Winemakers Notes

This wine has a rich dark color with a slight garnet hue. Oaked for 10 months, displaying a combination of spicy black pepper, ripe plums and toasted wood-like characteristics. The phenolics provide just the right amount of texture which translates into a firm yet pleasant mouthfeel. This exemplifies the potential of the eastern US to produce a well-balanced Shiraz varietal that stands among the best.
