harvest note

The growing season was especially warm and dry in 2016, giving perfect conditions for maturity. The grapes were ripe and flavors were well developed. 2016 is well balanced with nice aromatic complexity and a harmonious tannin structure.

tasting note

This wine with a bright garnet color reveals a delicate and complex nose of raspberry, wild strawberry and cherry flavors accented by black peppers and hints of cinnamon. The vintage and the vineyard site offers a sleek and pure expression of red fruits and minerality from the gold basalt in conjunction with a well-built and harmonious structure.

food pairing

Pairs well with lightly seasoned red meats, chicken, turkey, lamb and root vegetables.
