Notes from the Winemaker:
The wine shows a deep garnet color, with aromas of raspberry jam,violet pastil and baking spice. Ripe strawberry and white pepper dominate the lush, round mid-palate. Beautifully integrated oak carries the fruit through the palate to a bright, long finish.

This blend combines select vineyards throughout the Russian River Valley with fruit coming from Widdoes, Kozlowski, Mar tinelli, and Gregori along with Gaps Crown Vineyard in the Sonoma Coast. Together, these vineyards and their various clones create a complex, fruit forward and delicious Sonoma County blend. Clones include Dijon, 667, 777, 115, and Pommard.


Ratings & Reviews:

95 Points - Wine Enthusiast:
"An arresting fruit quality and complex layering of flavors lend great interest to this appealing, well-balanced wine. Rhubarb, sour cherry and orange pekoe tea aromas lead to vivid black cherries and warm, subtle spices like cinnamon, cloves and nutmeg. – JG (Nov 2023)

93 Points - Wine Spectator:
"This is dripping with fruit, as raspberry, mulberry and plum compote notes roll through, along with sweet spice and red licorice accents. Reveals just enough brambly energy underneath to keep things honest. For fans of the style, though. Drink now through 2030. 9,400 cases made. - JM (Sep 2023)
