Product Description

14.2% ABV

VINEYARD NOTES | 5 year old, head trained, dry farmed,
red ferrus soils with small deposits of clay.
When looking
at a GPS map of the vineyard it literally looks like a leg

of ham or what the Bokisch family lineage would call

“jamon.” Mild winter, normal to a bit late bud break,

solid crop set, freakishly wonderful summer with very long

hang time. Yields of a bit more than 2.3 TPA, we

harvested 4.7 tons September 14th.

| Completely destemmed,
punch downs in ¾ ton bins, indigenous primary &

secondary fermentation, aged sur lees 8 months in

neutral French oak barrels. Lighter shade of ruby in color.

Big, boomin’ noseful of cassis, camphor, tea, wild

strawberry pie and red roses. Background notes of

blackberry, white pepper, jasmine and garrigue.

Wonderfully ripe, medium-bodied flavors of cassis,

blackberry and tobacco. Long finish of boysenberry pie,

baker’s chocolate and fine tannins, all framed with a bit

of acidity. 14% alc. 12 barrels made.
