On the nose you’ll find fruit aromas of raspberry preserves, fresh boysenberry, dried cranberry. On the mineral side there’s a soft presence of slate dust and pencil shavings. On the palate much of the same is confirmed, along with blueberry pie, wet granite, a faint recollection of cinnamon toast, and one of the longest finishes I’ve had in a long time. The tannins seem to just go on and on.

Food pairing notes
Pair it with steak, braised short ribs, or a cool evening around the fire pit.
Swirl this one in the glass and just smell it for the first minute, the bouquet is one of my favorites. Lengthy aromas that change over the course of 30-45 minutes.
