Vespera: (Latin) Evening, a time to gather with friends and family.
Our 2014 Vespera is just absurdly pleasurable to drink. This is an utterly charming, accessible, generous wine that prefers to welcome and embrace rather than to overwhelm. There’s a lot going on here, but it’s all beautifully balanced and elegantly proportioned. Savory and juicy sweet characters play off each other in a seamless mix of black raspberry and baking spices, cassis and violets, black cherry and graphite, dried cranberry and sage. Medium-bodied and silky smooth, this wine has lovely presence in the mouth and a graceful, almost weightless quality to the way it caresses the palate. The long finish reveals additional notes of spicy red currants, fresh pomegranate, and vineyard dust, carried on a structure of the most restrained, softest, most ethereal tannins of any of our wines.
