A Prohibition-style wine that first draws you in with aromas of dark bramble, bright red cherry, black licorice, dried orange peel, aromatic tea leaf, and cardamom. This succulent Red Blend delivers concentrated flavors bursting with blackberry, dark chocolate, and tart cherry. Warm toasty notes and sturdy tannins lead to a lingering finish. Once the wine is ready to age, we put select lots in previously used Rye Whiskey barrels to impart rich and spiced flavors. Some would say it’s as if a splash of Manhattan spilled into your glass of red wine.

The 2018 growing season saw winter rains and cool temperatures contribute to later-than-usual bud break. Flowering in mid-June occurred in a very stable weather window that contributed to a uniform f ruit set. Ideal weather continued through the summer. This allowed the f ruit to ripen slowly, keeping acidity high and producing fully developed, intense flavors.
