A passionately youthful and playful wine, this dual-block offering is both coy and flirtatious. The bouquet presents an unusual concoction of blueberries and tart cherry to grilled meats and fresh lavender. The floral expression persists upon entry, as a bounty of fruit oversees a mouth with edges shaped by plum, perfume, and cocoa. An extension of perfume and plum provide the finish, riding a bridge of soft and elegant tannins.

Wine Profile
Vineyard Notes
The majority of this fruit was sourced from two distinctive blocks named Darkside of the Moon and Sympathy for the Devil, both located on the hillside Poetry Vineyard. Despite their geographic juxtaposition, the soils of these two blocks demonstrate stark contrasts, which are reflected in the wine’s complex profile.
Production Notes
Grapes were picked in the darkness of the early morning hours, and immediately subjected to rigorous selection by our three-tiered hand-sorting system. The berries were gently delivered to tank by our distinctive crane system, minimizing disruption of berry integrity. Cold soaks lasted approximately four to five days and fermentations were managed via a combination of delestage, punchdowns and pumpovers. Extended maceration from three to five weeks fine-tuned our tannin profiles, and allowed us to perfect mouth feel and wine complexity. The wine underwent eighteen months of elevage in 63% new French oak and 37% neutral French oak.
