Description

This dark-ruby GSM blend from Thompson Vineyard – along the Alisos Canyon corridor in Santa Barbara County – is richly pleasing. We aged the wine in large-format puncheons for 20 months, with 93% of the French oak barrels being a year old or more.

The result is red plum and black cherry on the nose, with additional aromas of baking spices and vanilla. You’ll catch the scent of cigar box, forest floor, and bay leaf before you sip to taste Herbs de Provence and vanilla.

This GSM blend rounds out with flavors of salted dark chocolate, red plum, black raspberry, and black cherry to finish.
