The 2019 growing season here in Pilot Mountain was marked by very little rainfall, warm sunny days with a constant breeze flowing through the vineyards. This ripened the fruit slowly and at the same time dehydrated the fruit slightly which reduced our yields and in- turn accentuated the fruit flavors and varietal characteristics. This rich and luxurious full bodied wine is layered in enticing aromas of cherry, blackberry, mocha & baking spices. This elegant wine has a supple and velvety finish with balanced tannins, berries and minerals, pairing wonderfully with steaks, stews, game or to be enjoyed on its own. This wine will continue to age gracefully for a decade or more.
