This wine could be classified as a Bordeaux-style blend, however Jaimee took the precision and science out of the blending aspect and co-fermented the varieties. With the parcels of each variety neighboring each other in the vineyard, she was inspired by the co-fermented field blends that she's tasted from the Loire Valley. This wine has an excellent playful attack, elevated mid palate, and classic rounded tannins. With hints of tangerine peel, cinnamon, red hot candies, bing cherry and rhubarb, it evolves from summer riverside crusher to fireside sipper with time in glass.
