Maintains the defining cranberry fruit and savory elements so characteristic of Freestone. The core of cranberry fruit is overlaid by brambly blackberry and Bing cherry, and the tannin structure is fine-grained and sweet. In the nose, it offers focused fruit, along with Asian spice and a touch of thyme and tarragon that is the hallmark of the vineyard.


Winemaker's Notes:

The core of cranberry fruit is overlaid by brambly blackberry and Bing cherry, and the tannin structure is fine-grained and sweet. In the nose, it offers focused fruit, along with Asian spice and a touch of thyme and tarragon that is the hallmark of the vineyard. In the mouth, cherry and berry flavors are complemented by coriander, cinnamon and nutmeg, finishing with a burst of bright, zesty cherry. It is the nuance and detail of this wine that sets it apart - touches of coriander, Bing cherry, nutmeg and white pepper appear in turn as you enjoy the bottle. Try this wine with a fish or meat dish accented with exotic spices, or with a nice chunk of Manchego cheese, but be sure to lay some down, as its future promise is clear.
