off the vine

Rich and extracted, this wine by winemaker Phillipe Melka, offers both power and elegance. Accessible now, it will certainly benefit from a year or two in the cellar. Black fruit and spice layered with currants, milk chocolate, briar and anise. The wine finishes with a touch of oak and fine grained tannins. Aged for 21 months in 100% French oak, it was bottled unfined and unfiltered.

price: $125.00
drink: 2009 through 2016
