Flavor Notes

Aromas of intense red cherry cola and black raspberry with hints of rhubarb complement the nuances of sweet cedar spice, vanilla and caramel. On the palate, rich deep flavors of blackberry and barrel spice deliver a lingering finish of fine grained tannins. While this beautiful vintage is ready to enjoy now, it will benefit from two-four years of additional bottle age.

The Making Of

During the four-day cold soak and the eight-to- twelve day fermentation, the wine was punched down by hand in small, open-top fermenters.

Roast Beef with Bèarnaise

For a truly special meal, make this recipe – using the Reverse Searing Method – your centerpiece. Most roast recipes start by browning the outside first to develop a richly flavored crust before finishing it in the oven. Reverse searing is just the opposite. First, cook the roast in a low oven until it’s just about done. You can do this a couple hours ahead of time. By cooking the roast at low temperature, you ensure the roast will be evenly cooked.
When you are ready to serve, sear the roast in a hot pan or very hot oven to develop the delicious crust. Searing the already cooked meat takes less time than browning raw meat and does away with that gray outer ring that develops when you cook the roast the traditional way. Also, you don’t have to let the meat rest before carving.
