2020 Hot Blooded

Counoise
$65 per bottle (Almost Sold Out)

It's not often you see this varietal as the star of the show, and we believe it deserves center stage. Opens with bright cranberry, fresh ocean spray & orange peel, layered with all spice and pine sap. On the palate, ripe fruit character takes the spotlight: Bing cherry, persimmon, pomegranate. jolly rancher and sugar plums; finishes beautifully with freshly steeped Earl Grey black tea. Enjoy with a delicate Italian seafood pasta or ragu. This is the red wine you'll want to drink when it's 103 degrees out... check it and see. Drink now or over the next 2-4 years.
