Bright ruby violet in color. Aromas of dark black and blue fruits dominate the nose – plum, pomegranate, black cherries, blackberry compote and currants. Notes of bergamot, black tea and white pepper add a soft, feminine complexity and a promise to evolve with additional cellaring. Light, soft tannins and juicy acidity bring the plush fruit into balance. Notes of red plum, sour brandied cherries and sweet mocha mingle with tobacco and fig preserve with a lingering, mineral-driven finish. Over time in the glass, the bright red fruit recedes and secondary and tertiary flavors of black pepper, forest floor and mushroom emerge, showcasing the power and structure of this cool-climate coastal vineyard site.
