Chocolate syrup and blackberry jam on the palette, but lavender, vanilla and candied plum on the palette. Rustic in design, earthy and jammy. Think marbled meats and decadence.

Winemakers Notes: "If I remember correctly, this comes from Bob down in Oliver, back when he owned the vineyard. Picked in the dead of night, the tractor almost dropped a bin on Bob's car. Corey Heart helped on this one, we did the small lot stuff, skin soak for a bit, daily punchdowns. Good job on this Corey."
