A veritable spice box aromatically. Incense cedar, fennel, star anise, clove, white pepper and carob give way to dark red raspberry, blueberry and blood orange. This wine has structure and acidity that will ensure it ages long and gracefully.
This fruit is sourced from the upper slopes of the Momtazi Vineyard in the McMinnville AVA. The vineyard is certified biodynamic by Demeter. Hand picked the first week of October, the fruit was in pristine condition and required no sorting. 50% whole cluster, spontaneous fermentation and 21 days on skins with gentle pigéage daily. 16 months élevage in neutral French oak barrels.
