Fragrant with cherries and notes of mint and licorice. The palate is textured and slightly savory with tart blackberry and hints of coffee and cocoa. The tannins linger gently on the finish.

Each was aged separately in neutral 59gal barrique, and racked together one (new) moon before bottling.A collaboration between Angela and Jason Osborne (A Tribute to Grace Wine Company), and Manuel Cuevas (C2 Cellars), who met during the 2013 vintage and have been discussing sunshine, moon signs and our Kiwi/Cornish/Mexican-American roots ever since.
