A dark, deep purple hue sets the tone of this seductive beauty. Aromas of dark berry, plum, graphite, and earth draw you in. Notes of black pepper, baking spices, sweet oak, cocoa, and hints of pipe tobacco continue to excite the senses. The palate is dark and brooding with concentrated blue and black fruits, bold spices, and a rich velvety texture that is rounded out by a balanced acidity that adds just the right amount of pop to this lively and interesting wine. This wine shows the unmatched quality of Maple Vineyard and the intensity dry farming vines provides us with.
