2019 Cuvée Kristina
Mac made this wine for his wife. It is always comprised of the most elite barrels of that particular vintage.
35% whole cluster fermented in concrete tanks and small, open-top bins, spending between 20-35 days on the skins, with a combination of pump-overs and punch-downs during cold soak and fermentation. Aged 20 months in 60% new oak 265-liter barriques.
Red fruit, dark roast coffee, blueberry compote, cigar smoke, seasoned mahogany, chocolate-covered cherries, exotic flowers. Rich, concentrated, focused, and layered, finishing with finesse and grace.
