2019 Shannon, Extended Barrel Aging
Seductive aromas of plum, anise, Calycanthus, cedar, and petrichor lure you in, while flavors of blackberry, cassis, fresh bay leaf, and violet keep you coming back for more. The palate is dense and tightly wound with a supple texture and polished tannins suggesting a beautifully long life ahead for this stunning blend…if you can keep your hands off it for now.
Destemmed and cold soaked for 7 days with daily pump-overs. 5-day fermentation with a mix of delestages, pump-overs and punchdowns for cap management. 12-day total maceration.
