A rich, dark wine that is luscious in character and not too sweet. Bramble, chocolate and spice notes rise up in the aromas. The flavors of this wine are infused with jammy, dark bramble fruit and tree spices. It is rich with a long, satisfying finish.
French and American oak barrels, 50% new
This wine is made from a proprietary blend of grape varietals all from Monterey County. We then added high-quality, barrel-aged spirits from the famous and exclusive Germain-Robin Alambic Distillery in Mendocino County that were personally selected by our winemaker. These spirits are distilled in genuine French copper pot stills from small lots of varietal wines and aged in 100% French Oak barriques for one year. The result – 8 barrels of unique and interesting wine – no barrel quite the same as the next due to the unique nature of making wine in this manner. We bottle this one barrel at a time and at this writing have 6 barrels left.
