Blue Eyed Boy, gorgeous! Oh my golly it is so smooth and rich and satiny. Just incredible! Incredibly aromatic with alluring notes of blackberry, dark cherry, mocha, black liquorice and vanilla bean. Carefully judged use of American oak has really added to the wines complexity.
The Blue Eyed Boy is dense in color with vibrant dark purple hues. A complex, alluring and lifted nose of blueberry, dark cherry, caramel and hints of vanilla bean leap from the glass. Powerful yet delicate, the wine voices luscious layers of fresh berries, black pepper, coffee and a finishing note of chocolate cream. Full bodied, well defined tannins provide the backbone, as the wine fills the mouth and continues to evolve with every glass poured.
The Blue Eyed Boy is Sarah's son, Luke. Stomping grapes as a kid and now working in their vineyard.
