The pure fruit expression of the Dijon 667 clone is one of its undeniable hallmarks, showcasing a mixture of red and black berries, and a burst of spicy boysenberry. Two other selections, Dijon 777 and Calera, complete the blend, and the resulting wine presents a complex array of fruit and spice accented with silky soft tannins.
There is a vibrant juiciness that is characteristic of the energy of the vintage. With time in the glass, the nose opens up to bergamot, pomegranate, and a hint of rose petal. The palate offers cherries, black raspberry, and a touch of cedar riding long through the finish. The final blend enjoyed 14 months of barrel age (40% new) from our favorite French coopers of Cadus, Francois-Freres, and Sirugue.
