Winemaker Notes:

This prized and historic wine presents a special aroma and flavor profile that is distinctive to the Dry Creek Valley appellation. Black and white pepper, dried flowers, potpourri, and bright cherry elements immediately arise from the glass. After several minutes of airing, the wine reveals layers of blackberry and raspberry fruit along with exotic spices. On the palate, the wine is rich and well-balanced with black raspberry, wild cherry, and brambly fruit. Several more sips reveal a bright earthy quality that is truly unique and distinctive. This is a wine that is seamless and well integrated from start to finish.
