Winemaker Tasting Notes
The nose is comprised of enticing aromas of framboise, high-toned raspberry, slight caramel, violet, vanilla, and clove. The palate is full-bodied and complex, displaying lots of black cherry, blueberry, cocoa powder, rose petal, and finishes with wonderful presence and length.

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 TightRope. Serve at 58-62F.
