Winemaking Notes: The fruit for this wine comes from vineyards that have been manually harvested and farmed using organic and biodynamic practices. The grapes were whole cluster pressed and fermented with indigenous yeast for 10 days. Aged in tank, this wine is unfiltered with no added sulfites. The wine was bottled on a fruit day.
Tasting Notes: This is a well balanced, full-bodied red with low tannins. Strawberry and raspberry show on the nose. There are flavors of sour cherry, tobacco, and spice on the palate.
