This is summer sunshine in a bottle with a beautiful coral color and aromas of red currant and strawberry mingled with that signature flinty Red Mountain mineral component to the nose. The smooth, long finish garners plushness from short-term aging in neutral oak barrels.
Aromas of tart blueberry and lush red cherry dominate the nose, while firm tannins and full body lend structure to this inky, pigmented wine. The palate features notes of dark fruit, fresh cut wood, and dried tobacco. This wine is an excellent candidate for decanting, as the aromas evolve wonderfully over time to express softer, lush fruit and hints of herbs and spices.
Pepper Bridge perfection – from one of the oldest blocks at Pepper Bridge Vineyard, this wine shows the balance and poise of a tightrope walker with enough acid to keep it interesting balancing a rich, full mouthfeel. This wine shows off spicy, red berry fruit aromas and flavors that linger seductively on the finish.
