2012 EFESTĒ Upright Klipsun Vineyard

Estate: EFESTĒ Estate
Region: Red Mountain, Columbia Valley, Washington State, United States of America
Vineyard: Klipsun Vineyard

Tasting Note:January 14, 2017

Medium ruby red. Beautifully layered nose with blackberries, black currants, chalk, burnt wood, and dried bark. Moderate tannins (6/10) that are well integrated but a little out of balance with the acidity in the finish. Very dark palate and rounded attack, with tobacco, spices, roasted almonds, unsweetened cocoa milk and black berries. Medium body and medium finish. Great start to this wine from the nose till the attack of the palate, then the acidity will kick in. Two options: either this wine will balance out with age or drink by 2019.

Single vineyard bottling made of 100% Merlot.
