Handwritten Wines

 

Handwritten 2012 Three Words 750ml

Unlike most blends, which are almost scientifically blended after the various wines have already been made, 'Three Words' is a pre-meditated, almost artful process wherein our winemaker harvests these carefully curated plots and ferments everything together. This creates a beautiful cohesion within the wine and allows the various varietals to age together in the barrel. There is a very unique intention behind blends as Rob is able to get the best of each grape variety and vineyard and polish it into something both elegant and approachable. Happy alongside a vast array of different dishes, the 'Three Words' makes the ultimate wine for entertaining guests.

Harvest & Tasting Notes:

As with every vintage of the flagship Three Words, the 2012 delivers an aromatic intensity that is impossible to ignore. With every inhale more intrigue, from perfumed notes of musk and black plum to brooding mission fig surprisingly layered with fruity red licorice. On the palate we find black tea, clove and ripe blackberry. An imposing structure of medium to high acidity and gritty tannins will allow this wine to age for seven to ten years in your cellar. The long finish tinged with leather and sweet spice make for an appealing wine even in its youth.
