91 Points Wine Enthusiast

This deep ruby colored wine exhibits aromas of rich dark fruits like black cherry, raspberry, root beer and cola with complex underlying scents of currant, cassis, vanilla and cinnamon spice. This wine is full of layered fruit flavors of dark cherry, raspberry, cranberry, and blueberry with hints of vanilla and creme brulee. On the palate ripe tannins and balanced acidity create a rich velvety mouth feel.

Additional Details

The must underwent a pre-fermentation “cold soak” to increase extraction of color and flavor. Fermentation took place in small 1.25-ton fermenters with the cap being punched down by hand. The individual lots were fermented with specially chosen yeast and after pressing, the wine underwent malolactic fermentation naturally in French oak barrels, 70 percent of which were brand new. The barrels selected to be included in the First Class cuvee were pre-blended to ensure consistency and a proper “marriage” of flavors and then racked back into barrels to complete the aging process. 10 months in French oak barrels, 12 months bottle aging before release.

Upon receiving the wine back we will refund for the wine minus the initial shipping cost. In the event that we make a mistake we work with you to fix whatever went wrong at no additional cost to you.
