Winemaker Notes:

This beautiful wine begins with aromas of bright red cherry fruits, anise, pepper and a potpourri of dried flowers. Several more turns of the glass reveal a structured wine with underlying graphite, mineral, cassis and dried herb qualities. On the palate this wine expresses a succulent fruit style with black cherry and blackberry at its core, mixing in baking spices and earthy undertones throughout. The tannins are seamless, allowing the fruit to be the star of the show. The finish repeats many of the aromatic themes and seems to linger on and on. This wine is a testimony to the quality of our vineyards and certainly highlights the incredible quality of fruit that the Dry Creek Valley has to offer.
