Tasting Notes: The Dry Creek Valley vines on the Bushnell Vineyard average 50 years of age. The wine is a truly unique style. There are intense aromas of baked cherry, plum and spice with a nuance of tobacco. On the palate there is a concentrated, almost Port-like texture with rich flavors of black fruit, toasty oak and cedar/spice. The fruit is rich and ripe, yet not sweet. Tannins are firm and in perfect balance with all other components. The best food pairing is a great bleu cheese like Gorgonzola! If you enjoy a good cigar, pair this wine with a Maduro wrap.
