In 2009 we were remodeling the old farmhouse, which is now our Hye Society Lounge, when a skeleton key was found hanging on a nail. This key opened every door in the old farmhouse and, in turn, awakened the spirit of William Chris. The dream of the old and new was discovered when that old farmhouse was unlocked, making William Chris a reality. This soulful wine is to celebrate the coming together of two great friends and how their passion for life was unlocked when that key was turned.
Presents tinting of deep blueberry & plum skin with satin like purple. Baked blackberry pie topped with lemon zest unfold from the glass showing supple cranberry & wisps of vanilla bean, opening to ripe blueberry notes with rhubarb peaks layered with orange oil, cardamom & star anise. Rich coffee mulled with cranberry adds life to a full bodied, lingering finish.
