The 2011 Split Rock comes from a cool growing year which gave us a wine of moderate weight but distinctive balance and proportion. The bouquet invites with the scent of black currants, cherries and sugar cookie. The wine is lively on the palate, full bodied but not heavy, with the fresh flavors of currants and cherry, followed by molasses, toasted pecan and pomegranate liqueur. The wine finishes as it begins, with fresh fruit and velvety tannin, sweet cocoa and black raspberry. Thanks to its supple texture and refreshing minerality, it will complement a wide variety of dishes and can stand alone. Enjoy now and over the next decade.
