Tasting Notes

NOT AVAILABLE FOR TASTING AT CELLAR DOOR

The components of this unusual blend received exactly the same treatment in the winery as our single-variety releases, but for reasons of style were excluded from the final bottlings. Its juicy fruit, seasoned with maturation in new and second-fill barrels, make an irresistible package.
