Wine Details

Wine Description

(From 2009 Vintage) The 2009 Arise reveals an arresting perfume of cherry, blackberry, fig, and cedar. Aged in French Oak barrels for 21 months, the chewy mid-palate presents enticing flavors of plum and spice within structured layers of red fruit. Drinking well upon release, Arise will age beautifully with time in the cellar.

Winemaker's Notes

The 2007 Arise reflects an aromatic nose of rhubarb, cherry, and wild raspberries. The approachable, yet dense palate is dominated by red fruits, plum, and enticing smoky-savory notes. An inviting wine in its youth, Arise offers fine-grained tannins combined with impressive structure and balance.
