AROMATICS
Intoxicating, ripe, red and black berry fruit, and cherry pie leaps from the glass. Framed by hints of bramble, sage and saline minerals. Similar in aroma to a Petite Sirah with those big, ripe berry aromas and tannins dense enough to smell.

PALATE
Old World entry / attack with complex and earthy tension, dense fruit, very layered in the mouth with fairly mind-boggling, playful complex- ity for a baby. This is like a 5 year-old child that can speak 3 languages already. Good, unevolved tannic grip promises long life for this wine, unevolved but brilliant.  Non-filtered.

FOOD PAIRING
Grilled meats, barbecue, tri-tip, New York Strip or Wagyu Carpaccio with capers and shallots. Hard cheeses such as aged Cheddar, Mimolette or slightly crunchy Gouda.  Lamb stew, or Moroccan lamb would be a treat as well.

AGING
Drink or hold. Your choice. This is my first Lagrein, so I will admit a bit of ignorance, but I’ve had versions from this vineyard go ten years and still show some baby fat and intense mineral depth.
