Every now and then, we are rewarded with barrels that we believe were "Given to Fly". When tasting through a vintage in barrels you sometimes land on one that stops you in your tracks and makes you take notice. Such barrels are considered for this blend. The best of the best makes it into the wine. "Given to Fly" by Pearl Jam is a song that we interpret to say that regardless of how it's received, we are here to give love away and won't be deterred. As such, a portion of the proceeds from this label will always be donated to a charitable organization for their opportunity to fly as well. This vintage is 50% Pommard, 25% 115, and 25% 777 clone. ~Dru Allen
This wine presents a nose that is intriguingly dusty and firm, with a brooding intensity that hints at darker fruits. On the palate, it displays a vibrant, juicy experience showcasing energy with an interplay of fresh fruit flavors and firm, complex structure. A long, lingering finish, leaving a satisfying, memorable impression.
