2017 Rabicano, Deux Chevaux Vineyard
Dark plum in color with an aroma profile that delivers blackberry jam and a hint of baking spices, lavender and tobacco. Primary flavors are delivered with plush, medium palate weight. Notes of dark fruit, cranberry, plum, and cherry cobbler, intermingle with hints of forest floor, leather and slight minerality. The tannins are chalky and slightly textured. The finish evolves from spicy to smooth, with lingering cocoa powder and light acidity. This wine will age beautifully over time and allow the complexity of the varietals to integrate elegantly.
