Winemaker Tasting Notes
The nose is dominated by complex aromas of blackberry, rosemary, Darjeeling tea, slight smoke and cardamom. The palate is rich and persistent; showing layers of blackberry, raspberry cordial, allspice, green tea, black cherry, and cocoa powder on a sturdy frame of supple tannins.

Tendril wines are made “low and slow,” just like great food: we give them time to reach their full potential at the winery, aging 16 months minimum in barrel and 6-18 months more in bottle before release. If you prefer aging, 3-15 years from vintage date is ideal for C-Note. Serve at 58-62F.
