2016 The Vineyardist Heritage Ridge
"The 2016 Vineyardist Heritage Ridge is our vineyard designate wine made from Estate fruit grown on Aiken loam soils. The result is immense aromatics featuring Black Forest Cake, warm plums, Christmas pudding and mocha notes. Hints of blackberry preserves, star anise, mountain chaparral and creme de cassis add freshness and finesse. The palate is full and rich, with layers of earth flavors. The finish is long and mineral driven, demonstrating grace and decadence allowing the wine to age easily for 25+ years."
