Wine Description

This wine is perhaps the finest testament to the superior soils, the perfect climate, and the exceptional skills of the Emeritus Team from planting, to harvest, to fermentation, barrel aging, and bottling. This, we believe, is a noble wine.

Winemaker's Notes

(From 2012 Vintage) This vintage from Halberd Ranch is more extroverted in nature. The wine is characterized by a fruit outburst and mild acidity. Fresh fruit flavors of plum and cherry govern the palate with layers of spice and supple tannins. The wine is very approachable and joyful in nature.

    nose of tart red cherries, light body with minerality/evervescence taste when bottle freshly opened-- open an hour before drinking. Balanced flavors of soft red fruits and smokey finish. Quality: very good.
