1.5L bottles signed by John Jordan are available through October 19.
Pretty aromas of red fruits open to flavors of more cherries, cranberries and raspberries with hints of tobacco and enticing baking spice. The tannins are balanced but still structured by beautiful acidity, hinting at this wine’s longevity. Flavors of cherry, cedar and spice linger on the long finish. Decant and enjoy immediately or allow to breathe for an hour. Drink through 2026 in 750mL bottles and 2031 in 1.5L magnum bottles, as well as 3L through 2036 and 6L through 2041.
Fermentation: The vineyard blocks were harvested and fermented separately, spending 12–21 days in tank depending on the particular character of the site. Malolactic fermentation occurred before the lots were re-tasted to determine which exuded the sensory characteristics to merit inclusion in our barrel blend lots.
Cooperages: A combination of top French and American oak coopers
Aging: Aged for 12 months in two-thirds French oak and one-third American oak barrels, of which 33% were new, before two years of bottle age.
