This wine is a blend of traditional and modern varieties aged in older American and French oak barrels and bottle-aged before release. The resulting wine is an intense, bracken-fruit style with prominent notes of ripe blackberries and baked blueberries. It is almost as if the slate and mineral aromas transport you to Priorat. The low-yielding vines have ensured chewy flavors on the palate, with concentrated fruit slowly making way for velvet tannins derived from both the berry and the barrel. The warmth of the wine persists and makes for a great pairing for a traditional food such as oven-baked goat or lamb. Also, due to the minimalist handling of the wine, an hour or so of decanting prior to serving will benefit.
