Wine Description

(From 2012 Vintage) Tribute is a first of its kind. Made entirely from estate-grown grapes, this Bordeaux blend of predominantly Cabernet Sauvignon reveals the complexity and individuality of our Benziger family Sonoma estate. Tribute was the first Demeter-certified Biodynamic® wine from Sonoma County and one of the first from North America.

Winemaker's Notes

Aroma: The slow ripening and cooler temperatures preserved beautiful fresh fruit aromas of blueberry and, boysenberry. Scents of dark chocolate, coffee, nutmeg, vanilla and black pepper also introduce the wine. Mouthfeel: This vintage of Tribute really exceeds all other years in sheer enjoyment. The entry of the wine is rich and full with an almost sweetness to it. The tannins engage immediately; layer after layer of velvet, silk and chalk. The finish is round and smooth.
