We were extremely happy with the high-quality and abundant fruit harvested. During fermentation, we used both punch-down and pump-over techniques to ensure balanced extraction of flavor, aromatics, structure and color. To allow both the sweet and structural influences from the barrels to intermingle seamlessly with the rich fruit and ripe tannins of the wine, we aged Böen in 100% French oak, 60% new.
COLOR: Ruby Red with hints of plum.
AROMATICS: Raspberry tart, blueberry, dried rosemary, and molasses.
PALATE: Bold layers of blackberry, strawberry, and boysenberry pie, gives way to flavors of cocoa, nutmeg, and brown sugar. A full bodied wine, balanced by refreshing acidity on the long finish.
Grilled rosemary lamb chops with potatoes au gratin, smoked brisket burger, or eggplant parmesan.
