Winemaker Flint Nelson Notes
I love working with the varietal despite its challenges. It tends to be a very vigorous and produce large and small berries that don''t all ripen at the same time. Every year, the color is always inky purple and the aroma is always brimming with dark ripe fruits. You will find elements of violet, clove and cardamon. Under the floral perfume, dark ripe fruits such as blackberry, huckleberry, currant, plum and persimmon are perfectly balanced by toasted oak vanilla and mocha. This is a deep multifaceted wine with lingering finish. As all wines from Kestrel View Estate you can taste a mineral element that seems to be our unique terrior. I like to think of it as being able to taste the earth that the roots of our vines lovingly embrace.
