Vineyard Notes
The 2015 vintage started with an unseasonably warm late winter and spring, which led to early bud break. However, in May a cold snap destroyed many of the flowers which led to shatter (uneven fruit set). Additionally, there were drought conditions and thus all of this amounted to a very early harvest of remarkably low yields but very high quality.
Production Notes
Rolando’s goal is to embrace the true character of this varietal and not squander its natural bold structure. As much tannin is extracted as possible before being aged in 100% new French oak barrels.
Tasting Notes
This inky, purple wine has aromas of dark fruit, sugar cane, chocolate and caramel with nuances of vanilla, cedar, cinnamon and graphite. Upon entry, flavors explode like fireworks – intense, ripe fruit, hints of cassis and chocolate surrounded by silky, chewy, ripe tannins that continue through to a long finish.
Food Pairing Notes
Pair this wine with hearty dishes such as smoked brisket, lamb stew, rigatoni with spicy sausage, or Mexican dishes such as adobo and mole. For a cheese course, try with aged or smoked cheeses such a gruyere and gouda.
