The deep ruby-colored 2015 Firepit is redolent of fruit, fruit, fruit! A cornucopia of blackberry, black cherry, kirsch, and currant roll off the nose, but there is a hint of chocolate Oreo cookie as well. Very full bodied with a creamy mouthfeel and grippy tannins, this release's palate matches its name: ripe wild blackberry and charred s'more. A worthy successor of the 2014 vintage that sold out quickly and sped the early release of this blockbuster wine from a notoriously low yielding and intensely flavored vintage.
Shallow red clay soil and a persistent breeze form the ideal combination for growing world-class red wines. In the center of our Crown Block estate vineyards is a stone firepit surrounded by individual small blocks of old vine Merlot, Zinfandel and Petite Sirah, and newer plantings of Cabernet Sauvignon, Cab Franc, and Malbec. Uniquely, the Crown Block's soils are constantly dredged up from the bordering Greenville Fault and drain in all four directions of the compass.
