2018 RESERVE DURIF
Complex aromas of dark berries; ripe, round, rich juicy blackberry on the palate. Full tannins and texture. Decant and enjoy this age-worthy wine.
After small-lot fermentation, our 2018 Reserve Durif was aged in once and twice used French oak for 16 months then barrel selected and aged in new and once used French oak for an additional 12 months.. Our Durif is planted on the steepest hillside in our Coble Ranch Vineyard, increasing the flavor concentration in the grapes. This creates a bold flavor profile due to the increased skin to juice ratio which intensifies the tannin structure and color in the finished wine.
