The primary aromas of dried ripe raspberries are laced withsecondary notes of winter spice and wet limestone. The wine has a lush weight on the mid palate that carries sweet fruit flavors with hints of lavender. While the rambunctious Tempranillo andZinfandel portions are occasional blend partners, the outlier Petit Verdot brought this wine back to a serious place by adding depth of flavor and a defined structure.
Our 2014 Randolph is a stunning wine as versatile as any we’ve ever bottled. It possesses traits of a wine blessed with both juicy ripeness and composed balance. Its great versatility makes this wine an easy choice for a weeknight pasta dish or a Saturday evening dinner party. The nose is jam-packed with lush high-toned cherry and supported by toasted oak and vanilla. In the palate, bright acidity in the attack brings forward dark stone fruit flavors of satsuma plum which course through the palate with a creamy, soft texture that lingers into the finish. While this wine will age for years, it is also remarkably drinkable in its youth.
