This bold blend of Rhône varietals has big aromas of black pepper, leather, black cherry, and baking spice. The palate is full-bodied and filled with flavours of smoked black pepper, black cherry, blackberry, and a smokey oak that lingers on the finish.
The 2018 growing season got off to a great start but in mid-July smoke from fires in the Pacific Northwest blocked much of the sunlight which slowed down ripening dramatically. This resulted in wines with lower alcohol levels, ripe fruit flavours, and balanced acidity. All’s well that end well.
