The Sestina is an ancient form of poetry from
Medieval France. Just as a modern poet can fill this
form with new expressions, we use the traditional
Bordeaux blend to express Washington. Sestina is
our vision for an old vine, complex blend where all
of the components complement each other. This
wine is designed for the cellar, so the emphasis is
on structure, balance, and complexity.
2012 Sestina: This wine is a blockbuster, with black
currant, black raspberry, saddle leather, freshly tilled
earth, vanilla and violet on the nose. Exceedingly
rich and balanced on the palate, with great poise and
structure for long aging. The finish echoes with
fresh black fruits, minerally touches, and floral notes.
