This wine smells of the vineyard as sagebrush, dry brush, and anise blend with black cherry jam and a hint of walnut husk. Spicy tannins complement the high acidity and smooth body texture. The palate is reminiscent of dried black cherries, dates, baking spices, and vanilla, and the vineyard aromatics emerge as clearly as they did on the nose. An earthy yet opulent wine that will benefit from “breathing” 30 minutes before enjoyment. 

Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
This Bordeaux-style blend is a complex, full-bodied wine blended entirely from Darcie’s own Crown Block Vineyard. The wine exhibits flavors and aromas of dark cherry, plum and tobacco with a long vanilla finish. After aging for over 24 months in the barrel and a few months in the bottle, it can be enjoyed now or can be laid down in the cellar for further rewards.
