Two words describe this stand-out wine:
Drizzle Barrel. Winemaker Clarissa Nagy put her stamp on this
one by applying a special technique where she removes the skins and
seeds and allows the free run (unpressed) juice to go straight into
barrels. The rest goes into a tank and more juice slowly and
painstakingly drizzles out, forming a concentrated liquid.
Deep purple with a lush and elegant texture, it screams
subdued opulence as notes of blackberry and truffle jump out of the
glass. Pretty flavors on the palate like blackberry and baked
pear mingle nicely with hints of cloves and tobacco, and the
tannins balanced with pure acidity make it particularly age-worthy.
Try it with any celebratory dinner, whether you’re
commemorating finishing the laundry or saving the world.
