Tasting Notes: A cuvée of clones 37 and Dijon 777, this wine is named for Wayfarer’s sandstone substrate that urges our vines to burrow deeply, their fruit echoing the unlocked terrain below. Dense ruby in color, the 2013 vintage is as delicate and spirited as it is focused and powerful. The nose bounds with sexy ripe strawberry and fresh raspberry aromas followed by savory hints of raw leather, walnut burl and flint. Most stunning is the luxurious mouthfeel, plush with soft tannins and buoyant with laser-focused acidity. Flavors of blackberry cordial and fresh red cherry cascade into a long finish lifted by expansive notes of lavender oil and lightly toasted oak. Ready to enjoy upon shipment, it will age beautifully for another 7–10 years.

Winemaker's Notes: We hand-picked and hand-sorted the fruit, reserving 18% for whole-cluster fermentation. The remaining berries were then de-stemmed and hand-sorted again before transfer to tank. Five to seven days of cold maceration preceded more than two weeks of 100% native yeast fermentation. The fruit was then gently pressed, its free-run juice transferred to 50% new
French oak barrels for 15 months of aging.
