Knudsen Vineyards is a thoughtfully assembled collection of vine blocks planted at different elevations, with different spacing, row orientation, and clonal types. This wine is composed by blending equal parts of wines produced from eight distinct blocks of Knudsen Vineyard, each contributing elements which combine to assemble this complex and balanced wine.
Deep ruby red hues with rich underlying spice and dark fruit aromatics. Youthful and bold with a textural pallet showing gripping tannins, firm acidity and mouth coating structure. Hints of tangerine peel and chocolate ganache are present while flavors of cola and ginger spice continue to open up as the wine aerates. This is a beautiful contrast from recent vintages, with a savory umami sensation that teases your tastebuds and suggests the potential for long cellaring time. Decant this wine at least 1 hour prior to drinking if you open early. Otherwise, this wine will easily age for 9-11 years in a properly controlled cellar.
