Aromas of freshly smashed summer berry, violet, chocolate ganache, leather, clove and spice. The 2015 Coup de Grace has a big, rich, mouthfeel with balanced acidity and nicely integrated tannins. Blackberry, candied blueberry, earth, spice and toasted oak flavors come forward over a lasting finish.
The wine is 100% barrel aged for 17 months. Barreled down after settling from primary fermentation the wines go through malolactic fermentation in barrel adding to the wines rich, weighty mouth-feel. The wines are aged independently with the final blend created shortly before bottling.
