All Long Shadows Vintners wines are made in small lots to allow maximum blending flexibility. Occasionally, a few lots of select barrels stand out as exemplary of the vintage. When this is the case and the winemaker identifies a rare, exceptional wine worthy of showcasing, a limited Vintage Select wine is bottled.
The 2015 Sequel Vintage Select Bin 898 has a dark core with a concentration that is skillful and carefully created, framing blackberries, dusty plum and black raspberries. The oak structure on the medium to full-bodied palate is clean and focused with an elegance that shines through with soft tart red cherry flavors. The wine ends with complexity and a structured, lingering finish that is both bold and elegant, capturing the essence of oak tones with a soft floral spice on the aftertaste. Only 137 cases were produced.
The late-release 2015 Sequel Vintage Select Bin 898 reveals plenty of nice dark fruits alongside tar, tobacco leaf and coffee ground flavors. Enjoy this beautifully evolved wine over the next 10 years.
