EQUINOX Edition 9 – Six Names

2016 CALIFORNIA RED WINE

An intriguing blend of layered complexity and beguiling spirit, the wine sits as dark violet with a lucid amethyst rim. The nose opens with remarkable aromatics of ripe blueberries, cassis, and black plum, complemented by hints of lavender, chapparal, sweet oak, anise and white pepper. Rich and coating upon entry, blackberry pie and compote of Bing cherry and plum give way to the wine's elegant side - a mid-palate of dark cacao and framboise. The ripe tannins allow the wine to bow out at length with a smooth, espresso bean finish.
