One-third whole cluster was used during fermentation and then it rests in 20% new French oak for 17 months. The wine displays a lovely deep ruby color with a brickish rim and classic Rocks flavors and aromas of gamey barbecued meat, green olive, wild forest blueberry, sugar-coated black plum, white grapefruit zest, gooseberry, dried thyme, and freshly laid tar. Tannins are ripe and well-integrated, acidity is in the medium-high range, and the finish is black fruit and wet-earth driven. Only 311 cases were produced.
