Baked black cherry and rich raspberry fruit, rounded by soft notes of vanilla, caramel, cocoa, and the earthy overtones of ground walnuts.

Hilltop Block; gently undulating loam; 1630 feet elevation
Food Pairing Notes
Rare to medium rare red meats are a great match for the Estate Tannat, smoothing the wine's tannins and allowing the mature fruit to shine through.
