White Boar 2011

Made from Shiraz and Cabernet Sauvignon grapes that were cordon-cut and left to dry on the vines for two weeks prior to harvesting, the medium to deep garnet colored 2011 “White Boar” displays evolving fruit notes of blackberry preserves and stewed plums with hints of Chinese five spice, dusty earth and fruit cake. Full-bodied with a good amount of spicy, maturing black fruit flavors, it has a racy line of acid and low to medium levels of rounded tannins that carry through the long finish. Drink it now to 2018+.
