2021 Gold Digger

2021 Gold Digger

47% Cabernet Franc, 44% Merlot, 9% Cabernet Sauvignon

A dark core of muddled strawberries, humidor, dried straw, and fine Italian leather introduce the 2021 Gold Digger. Earthier notes show up on the palate along with elements of black cherry, cured meats, and orange peel. Supple tannins and fresh acidity power the long, lingering finish.
