2016 Mountain Cuvee

« Back to Shop

A headlong procession of dark berry fruits, vanilla bean, graphite, and coffee aromas march unimpededly to stimulate a festive olfactory occasion, followed by flavors of plum, barrel spice, and mocha. The mouthfeel is full and forward in the front, leading to a focused core and long generous finish. Fruit and warm baking spices dominate a finale that lingers long after each sip, leaving the impression of subtle, yet supportive, structure in harmony with the fruit.
