Vineyard Notes
Record-breaking winter rainfall kicked off the season, filling the water table to capacity and replenishing soils. A mild spring brought bud break at the normal time, and vintners reported small berries with excellent color. A hot summer culminated in a Labor Day weekend heat wave, where the grapes endured the heat and once cooler weather arrived, fruit was able to mature at a gradual pace. At harvest, the fruit came in with excellent color, pronounced flavors and high quality across varieties.
Production Notes
Rolando treats this wine just like Cabernet in the cellar. As much tannin and structure as possible is extracted before the wine is aged for 21 months to refine the texture and balance the body.
Tasting Notes
This wine radiates a dark black cherry-red hue. Robust scents of cassis, tobacco, fennel, and white pepper signal the complexity ahead. On the palate, chewy, well-structured tannins frame intense flavors of cherry cordial, espresso, cured olive, with an undercurrent of dark cocoa and a fine Cohiba.
Food Pairing Notes
The bold flavors of this wine can stand up to big, meaty dishes. Try with Grilled Skirt Steak Tacos topped with Charred Tomato Salsa. For a classic cheese pairing, try with an aged Manchego, a Spanish sheep’s milk cheese.
