Winemaker Tasting Notes
Aromas of black cherry, eucalyptus and sweet baking spices lead to flavors of dark berries, cola and chocolate. Silky tannins provide a luscious mouthfeel with a long-lasting finish.

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.
