This wine was made just for our Philosophers’ Club members so enjoy the limited quantity with your friends and family during the holiday season or any other special occasion. Made from one of our favorite clones, from one of our favorite vineyards, the grapes were picked at 27.2 Brix and the wine was barrel aged in French oak for eighteen months. This wine is always a crowd pleaser!


Tasting Notes

The lovely garnet color is complemented by a rich nose of toasted hazelnut with juicy flavors of red plum, pomegranate and raspberry. The palate reveals layers of toasted caramel-cocoa. Brown leather, reminiscent of a well worn jacket, show up on the back end and make this a perfect cigar wine. Try pairing this wine with flatbread layered with sun-dried tomatoes, sweet onions and goat cheese. Also pairs well with lean meat, such as filet mignon, wild turkey, venison, or buffalo burgers. Indian food or other cumin spiced food also complement this wine. Peruvian chocolate torte is another option. Recommended bottle aging potential is 5-8 years.
