Synchromesh 'Turtle Rock Farms' Tertre Rouge

Availability: In stock (3)

"From Naramata's Turtle Rock Farms, this is an 52/48 blend of merlot and cabernet franc, a huge style departure from previous vintages. Both grapes were fermented mostly whole cluster before aging 20 months in French oak (34% new) and heading to bottle without fining or filtration. Soft and welcoming, with plush black cherry, wild plum, pipe tobacco, and perfumed boysenberry on a silken palate, striated with wild scrubby desert herbs and green whole bunchiness, and framed by firm, integrated tannins. I like the use of whole bunch to offset the perfumed plushness of this wine, though it needs a year or two to integrate fully in bottle." Gismondi On Wine
