Tasting Notes

I find that cooler vintages can make more opulent, aromatically intense and complex wines that overly hot vintages. 2018 was cool, and wet. The carbonic treatment of the wine amplified the nose and freshened up the fruit after drying. There is an intense plum and black cherry that moves into a hint of roasted pepper and pickling spice. The palate is dry, and the tannins are grippy, but the freshness throughout the entire mouthfeel is pleasing. This is a deceptive wine since the acidity balances out the weight nicely. I would recommend this with rich, fatty, and grilled meats finished with flakey salt.
