100% fruit from the Rinaldi vineyard in Fiddletown, with vines as old as they come, some dating back to 1865. Yields are incredibly low. This 2013, aged exclusively in French oak, has thick brambly blackberry fruit, with pepper, anise, clove, and other exotic spices. Fat and mouth-filling, with great persistence on the palate. It will hold for another 10 years, at least.
