(2012 Vintage) With its intense color and inviting aromas of dark berries, licorice, baking spice and a hint of smoke, the 2012 Pedestal is a bold wine that leaves a lasting impression. Dark fruit flavors integrated with sweetness from the barrel and richness from the tannins come together seamlessly, lingering across a structured mid-palate and lengthy finish.
