Flavor and structural attributes that highlight explosive fruit, spicy wood, and mouth-filling tannins.
Tremendous fruit flavors and textural depth. The list of aroma descriptors and flavors is long and includes white strawberries, clover, spearmint, beeswax, green hay, and apricot nectar.
Driven by flavor and acidity rather than by tannin and heat from alcohol. More reminiscent of Old World than of New.
Walks the line between fruit and vegetable, and sweet and savory. The cooler vintage definitely made its imprint on this wine with subtle fresh wax and cherry blossom undertones.
François Frères barrels are one of the most consistent barrels that we work with and always bring a flashy, unabashedly smoky aroma and sappy or oily tannin mouthfeel to a young wine.
Loaded with deep, dark, blue fruit smells. Underneath the fruit lies a savory salt-cured meat aroma that really gets you salivating. The mouth is round, sweet feeling (though it’s bone-dry), and just plain delicious.
