(2013 Vintage) Rich berry fruits combine with a touch of anise much like the famed West Block. A powerful wine with ripe fruit flavors, firm tannins and balanced acidity. Planted in 1989, this vineyard lies along the Russian River. It has taken awhile, but we have isolated the area of the vineyard that makes a wine with such distinction that it was added to our single vineyard selections
