Wine Description

(2013 Vintage) The cool, foggy Hudson vineyard imparts this wine with a smoky, gamey nose layered with white and black pepper along with some floral notes, while the sunny and rocky Stagecoach vineyard lends this wine intense and concentrated fruit aromas of blackberry, boysenberry, and huckleberry pie. The Hudson vineyard also brings beautiful, bright raspberries, black pepper, smoke, finesse, and a lively acid to the palate, whereas the Stagecoach vineyard adds dark fruit, great concentration, and structure. The whole-cluster fermentation adds more complexity with some green peppercorn and spice in the finish, and the oak imparts smokiness to the nose and bittersweet chocolate to the finish.
