Tasting Notes
Vibrant aromas of red currant, bright bing cherry and saddle leather underscored by notes of cinnamon and clove. The palate is full-bodied and rich with flavors of dried cranberry and blackberry with soft notes of vanilla and cedar. A round mouthfeel backed with a concentrated tannin structure leads to a complex, long finish.

The fruit for this wine was sourced from our estate Ste. Philippe vineyard in the Arroyo Seco appellation. This vineyard lies in a dry riverbed with sandy-loam soils affording excellent drainage. Cool wines contribute to an extended growing season, ensuring complexity and intensity of fruit.
