The Sestina is an ancient form of poetry from Medieval France. Just as a modern poet can fill this form with new expressions, we use the traditional Bordeaux blend to express Washington. Sestina is our vision for an old vine, complex blend where all of the components complement each other. This wine is designed for the cellar, so the emphasis is on structure, balance, and complexity.
Winemaker's notes: "Leads with aromas of cassis, cherry reduction, unsweetened chocolate, leather, bee pollen, cigar box, and liquid minerals. The warm 2015 vintage has super-charged the palate on this Sestina. It is large-scaled, structured, and extremely long on the palate, with crème de cassis, black cherry, cocoa, graphite, and floral notes. While more showy than usual in its youth, this wine will still age for 12-20 years easily." - Chris Peterson, Winemaker
