tasting notes

Enticing aromas of black cherry, red and black currant, and ripe, red plum are enhanced by hints of dried flowers, fennel seed, and sage. Compelling layers of dark berries, bittersweet chocolate, espresso and Madagascar vanilla coat the palate with velvety tannins. The power and concentration of this rich wine is balanced by vibrant minerality reminiscent of warm slate and graphite. This captivating wine celebrates the remarkable Poetry vineyard with its finesse and approachability, yet reveals layers of complexity and intense concentration as it evolves in the glass or with cellar age.
