McCormick Ranch Vineyard
San Diego County
The shapeshifter! San Diego's rustic old vines return as a brambly little beast full of raspberry dust, dried-orange peel and black tea leaves. The red-and-blackberry pucker on the palate moves seamlessly to silk and earth; black pepper and herbs. Partial whole-berry fermentation; nine months in neutral French oak barrels. Give this a light chill, and enjoy the evolution over the course of the bottle.
12.2% alcohol. Unfined and unfiltered. Natural sediment may occur in the bottle.
