The 2020 Fatalist Chardonnay is a wine of extraordinary fullness and finesse. Ample aromas of tropical fruit and pear are accompanied by trailing hints of citrus, jasmine and brioche. The palate is soft and luxuriant yet abundantly embroidered with flavors of pineapple, melon, peach, apricot and lime zest. A sense of creaminess emerges mid palate, while a lush and elegant finish lingers with subtle notes of spice and oak. A tour de force Chardonnay.
Introducing Fatalist Pinot Noir—an ultra-limited Pinot Noir crafted as the finest expression of our estate terroir.
Pinot Noir has been a signature variety at the Brick Barn estate since day one, and now comes the inaugural vintage from our ultra-premium Fatalist line, representing a special selection of the finest two barrels from the 2018 vintage.
The 2018 Fatalist Pinot Noir makes a striking impression with lively aromas of cherry, rhubarb, cedar, cinnamon and oak spice. The palate is plump and juicy yet remarkably poised, boasting rounded flavors of strawberry, plum and black cherry with suggestions of blue fruits, vanilla and baking spice. An undercurrent of cool minerality adds length and allure to a soft, polished finish.
We introduced Fatalist as a cult-quality Cabernet Franc starting with the 2017 vintage. Now comes this next release, representing a special selection of the finest barrels from the 2019 vintage.
The 2019 Fatalist is a wine of remarkable dimension and nuance. Rich cherry fruit aromas are laced with notes of cedar, sandalwood, rose petal and savory tobacco. An epically broad mouthfeel floods the palate with velvety flavors of black cherry, plum and pomegranate, all interwoven with hints of mocha, cola, mint and cinnamon. The experience is smooth, seamless and ultra-integrated to the end, punctuated by a sleek, polished finish.
