SILVER MEDAL - 88 Points - 2018 Orange County Wine Competition
Our fathomless Bordeaux-style blend was long aged, barrel fermented and hand racked for thirty months in 40% French oak barrels. It is luscious, sleek and complex with floral red currant and spice box aromas that lead to layered, concentrated flavors of black cherry, mocha, white pepper, sweet cinnamon and oak that jump from the glass. Velvety-soft, round tannins linger on the mid palate, producing a rich, elegant, dry finish. Enjoy now or be rewarded if allowed to cellar for 2 years or more.
2015 Ascendance is beautiful alone and compliments medium to sharp cheddar cheeses, roasted game hens, duck, pork, grilled steaks, prime rib, filet mignon, lamb and good friends.
Fill your glass with beauty and lift your spirits.
