Pretty, yet powerful. Keith Emerson and Brian Brown chose a single barrel that showed intense focus and exemplified both the site and vintage from which it was born. III Michaels Esatate, now known as Accendo, is located on the eastern bench of Oakville. Keith and Brian love this site because it has great exposure but also cool, heavy soils that help the vines retain natural acidity while letting the fruit fully ripen into deep, dark, intense flavors.
- Wine is unfiltered
- Single vineyard wine
- Sustainably produced
