Hints of smoke, cocoa, baking spices and vanilla on the nose leads to a savory mouthfeel with notes of meat and white pepper. Elegant, yet firm in tannins, this wine should pair great with game, roasted meats, lamb and steak.
In 2012, the warm dry summer and mild early fall weather provided very ripe and clean fruit from our vineyards. Aged 18 months in 25% new American barrels, and malolactic fermentation occurred naturally. This wine represents selections of our best barrels of Tempranillo from our “Le Chenaie” vineyard.
