Sticks and Stones sparkles in the sunlight, its bright ruby hue instantly brings a smile to your face. The aromatics evoke a strawberry rhubarb pie topped with fresh whipped cream enjoyed in a grove of eucalyptus on the first warm day of Spring. The candied fruit pops across the palate, with undertones
of California sagebrush and beef marinade hinting at many years of development ahead. As the wine
ages the relaxation of acidity and tannin will transform the bright juicy pop to a gentle enveloping flow, releasing layers of earth, chaparral and brown sugar to the red fruit. Drunk young, it seems to pass its own excitement onto your tongue, impossible to not return for that next sip. Drink now through 2022 to enjoy the fresh strawberry energy, 2025-2032 for a more mellow and earthy enjoyment.
