— This wine is part of the 2013 Dirt Worshipper Trifecta — 
With the fantastic 2013 vintage, we endeavored on an aging vessel trial with the Dirt Worshipper that took us on a journey that was a little unexpected but provided us with 3 very different and delicious wines. This version of the 2013 Dirt Worshipper spent 55 months in barrel before being bottled in 2018.

A dense and dark nose offering blackberry, acai berry, allspice and a touch of vanilla. This almost melts as it hits the palate with flavors of blueberry, plums, dried fig and a touch of mocha. The mid palate is lush and powerful, yet finishes with a gentle grip making the perfect wine for enjoying now or laying down for a few more years.
