Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
Graciano is still pretty new to us, but this vintage helped us realize what a special grape this is. This complex wine has bright red fruit reminiscent of spicy plum with a hint of watermelon and the interplay between acidity and the tight, gripping tannins is truly special. We held all 4 barrels we made for this designate: 3 neutral French barrels and our most subtle, new French barrel of the year. This has to be one of the best wines we’ve made yet!
