Comment:

Shana & Gavin Miller are the genius duo who paired a winery with a creamery – Shana heads up the creamery and Gavin is the winemaker. Both Shana and Gavin have had esteemed careers in the wine industry, so it’s not surprising that in only a few short years their brand of Upper Bench wines has amazed the palates of enthusiasts and wine reviewers alike.

 

This is a lovely red blend that has been oaked in French barrels for 14 months. The wine is well balanced and uncomplicated with a long, spicy finish. It’s drinking very nicely now, but could cellar up to 3 years.
