Floral aromas jump out of the glass. In addition to rose petals, there are notes of ripe blueberries and wet stone minerality. In the mouth, the concentrated fruit is round and full with powdery tannins. The bright acidity provides a lift on the finish that elevates the floral notes once more. This powerhouse of a wine can be enjoyed now, or safely cellared for years to come.
The fruit for this wine is grown at our acclaimed Spice Cabinet Vineyard in the Horse Heaven Hills. The grapes were double-sorted, first in the vineyard, then again at the winery. The fruit was not crushed in order to preserve as much whole-berry as possible. We fermented the wine in small open top fermenters with twice daily punch downs. After draining the wine and pressing the skins, the wine was racked to a blend of new and used French oak barrels. The wine was aged in barrel for 30 months before being blended together.
