Besomim is our semi-annual ragtag bunch of misfits, the current manifestation is a blend of Counoise, Grenache, Petite Sirah and Cabernet Sauvignon, aged for 30 months in neutral oak. Garnet colored, with aromas of rasberry, plum, and elderflower. The tannins are very supple and rich, supporting flavors of cherry, rasberry and sweet spice. Drink now through 2023
Hand picked from 130 year old head pruned vines in the sandy soils of the Contra Costa. This is a jammy rich fruit bomb with loads of cherry, plum and chocolate on the palate. This wine is not dry and has residual sugar on the finish, and very high alcohol. For those looking for balance and an old world elegance best look elsewhere.
