2016 MAHA Understory, $98

The first release from our certified Organic and Biodynamic estate vineyard, MAHA.

An ethereal Grenache based wine that captures the essence of MAHA. Expressive and multilayered, this wine is at once elegant and powerful. Notions of candied red fruits, orange peel, chocolate, anise and herbs are the amusé to a generous and vibrant palate with tremendous texture. Confitured cherries, raspberries, plums and spice are framed by juicy acidity and glycerin. The finish goes on for days. Enjoy it now, while fresh, or give it a few years in the cellar to become a more distinguished version of its young self. 84% Grenache, 10% Graciano, 6% Carignan

"Vivid ruby-red. A highly perfumed nose displays impressions of mineral-accented red and dark berries, candied licorice, exotic spices and a hint of potpourri. Sappy, sharply delineated red and blue fruit preserve and lavender flavors show bright mineral lift and take on allspice, white pepper and mocha nuances as the wine opens up. In an ample but lively style, finishing sweet, floral and extremely long, with just a whisper of fine-grained tannins. (15% whole clusters)"  95 pts Josh Raynolds, Vinous
