Tasting Notes

The 2023 vintage emerges from a season distinguished by its moderate climate. This year’s balanced weather conditions allowed for an even, gradual ripening of the grapes, enhancing their natural complexity and depth.

This vintage radiates a vibrant garnet hue in the glass, inviting the first exploratory sniff. The nose is met with an abundant array of aromas: juicy blackberries and rich, dark cherries take center stage, complemented by a delicate intertwining of vanilla and anise, which hints at the judicious use of oak.

As the wine graces the palate, it unravels in layers of lush, ripe fruit. The dark cherry and boysenberry heart is beautifully adorned with hints of espresso and dark cocoa powder, weaving a rich tapestry of flavors. This vintage rekindles the varietal’s signature boldness, with each sip revealing a subtle backdrop of pepper spice and a gentle reminder of the vineyard’s earthy terroir.
