2020 Hot Blooded

Counoise
$65 per bottle

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.
