(From 2012 Vintage) Aromas of cherries, cranberries, rose petals, cinnamon and vanilla. On the palate, red cherry, plum, vanilla, citrus, and toasted pecan. Fine tannin structure and a long finish.
(From 2010 Vintage) We created this wine by harvesting fruit from five vineyards in the Russian River Valley,Sonoma Coast and Alexander Valley regions.We use traditional open-top tanks,and whole-berry fermentations combining “punched cap ” and gravity--fed “rack and return ” techniques to gently extract flavor from the grapes. We developed this unique regime to preserve delicate fruit and give a soft,supple feel in our finished wines.
