60% Tannat, 40% Petit Verdot. F8 translates as 'Fate' or as the 'field 8' designation for where it was grown. Traditional French production methods, 19months aging in a blend of French, Minnesota, and neutral barrels. Bottle aged for 3 years. Deep purple in color. After a bit of decanting, very expressive in aromas to include violets, lilac, black plum, black cherry, bramble, dark chocolate, graphite, and vanilla. Continuing on the palate, flavors of black currants, raspberry, tobacco, smoke, black pepper, cardamom, sage, and spice. This is a dry masculine wine tamed by aging where micro-oxygenation allows time for the tannins to integrate into the wine. Med acidity, high, fine grained tannins, full body with a long finish. 

Food Pairing: rich BBQ, grilled meats and vegetables
