86% Carignan, 7% Cabernet, 7% Grenache

The 2018 Sacred Burro exhibits an exotic nose of black currant, violet, orange zest and five-spice. Dense and motley flavors of muddled strawberries, seared ribeye, cranberry and chocolate torte intermingle on the palate. Fantastic richness on the midpalate evolves into a finish that is vibrant and fresh - lending incredible complexity and intrigue to this dynamic wine. 86% Carignan, 7% Cabernet, 7% Grenache. Fermented 40% Whole Cluster.
