STARTING IN THE VINEYARD

2017 Began with abundant rainfall in the winter, a mild spring, and a late heatwave. A steady and mild September allowed sugar levels to return to normal. By October nearly 95% of the grapes were in when fierce winds fueled an unprecedented firestorm. The 2017 vintage describes the wines from 2017 with words such as "great complexity of flavor" and "high quality". The grapes were hand-harvested from a single vineyard. Petit Verdot requires more extra care and patience with increased vineyard and canopy management. 

TO THE CELLAR

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. 

IN YOUR GLASS

Rolando's signature style creates an inky and concentrated color that signifies complexity. While shy at first, complex aromas abound from the glass with notes of ripe dark cherry, plum, blackberry, hints of warm cedar, cinnamon, sandalwood,  cocoa, and vanilla. Upon entry, your senses are dominated by bold ripe juicy plums and ripe raspberries that introduce explosive black currant, sweet espresso, and cassis. The wine finishes with ripe tannins and is integrated with layers of sweet oak.

ON YOUR TABLE

Experiencing a glass of this wine with frilled duck drizzled with a cherry and plum gastrique. This will surely cut through those tannins. Add garlic butter Hasselback Potatoes and your meal is complete.
