Ruby red in color with a pale rim. Bright, juicy red fruit on the nose. Bursting with notes of cherry, strawberry, and cranberry on the palate. A velvety finish with just a hint of red liquorice. The vineyard has been reported as being haunted by ghosts who disappear when approached. While vineyard workers may have been disturbed by what they experienced, the grapes have been anything but. For 6 vintages this vineyard has produced a wine that is so highly regarded it has sold out every year within only months of its release.
