Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
The 2010 Offering is a wine that captures the imagination and challenges expectations, it displays a beautiful purity and depth that is reminiscent of having a summer picnic in an ancient church. Resinous scents of black cherry cola, frankincense, fresh-peeled Clementine orange and vanilla extract lead to a well structured and balanced palate of curried mix-berry cobbler, tumeric, dark chocolate cocoa nibs and black pepper with rocky, persistent tannins.
