Printable Wine Profile
Few wines can compete with the intoxicating aromatics of Sticks and Stones. Wild chaparral, soft delicate rosewater, and bright peak of season strawberries pull in your olfactory senses and send a dizzy pleasure directly to the brain. The tannins on this wine grab the front of the tongue, then slowly creep across the rest of the pallet, melting away at the lingering finish. The fresh red fruit notes on the pallet are offset by a gentle salinity and soft cedar notes.
Young the wine has a kinetic energy, the flavors exploding across your pallet reminiscent of a toddler running through a strawberry field. To allow for better aromatic development and a softer more featherlike feel on the pallet, decant the wine for one to two hours. Five to seven years of aging from vintage date allows for secondary characteristics to develop; earthy mushrooms and worn leather creating a perfect compliment to the now dried roses and ever present strawberries. A short decant is still recommended at this time to allow for the wine to relax into life outside the bottle.
