Spice, deep red fruit, crushed rocks are abundant on the nice. On the palate, one is greeted by abundant vibrant red fruits, spice notes and plenty of juicy acidity to keep it fresh and to sustain a long layered finish. The various components of this wine have only just begun to harmonize only 7 months post bottling. I would guess it will continue to improve with time in bottle, and given the excellent acidity, this could be a very long lived vintage.
Bradley Brown goes 100% whole cluster for this single-vineyard expression with stunning results. Aromas of sagebrush, pine needles, damp thyme and wet soil meet with tart raspberry on the distinctive nose. The palate's tangy red fruit is lifted by tea leaves, wild green sage and zesty acidity that vibrates the tongue.
