The 2016 Basic Black is loaded with complex undertones which interplay beautifully with exploding aromas of blackberry, violets, cocoa, cured ham, cinnamon and wet earth. Flavors of dark chocolate and dark fruits are integrated and proportioned across a foundation of dense mid palate tannins which lead to a long finish.
The majority of the fruit for this wine comes from Sonoma County (59%), the rest from Napa Valley, the whole made from cofermented Grenache, Early Burgundy, Tempranillo, Syrah, Carignan and Zinfandel. Together they offer a touch of reduction, black fruit and leather around dried herb and cedar notes.
