Winemaker Notes:

The grapes for this delicious Bordeaux-inspired blend come from several of our most prized estate and hillside vineyards in the Dry Creek Valley. Initially, the aromatics are bright and earthy with cherries, Herbs de Provence and fresh boysenberries emanating from the glass. Several more minutes reveal hints of tarragon, nutmeg, black tea and blueberry nuances. The palate displays layers of texture and complexity with provocative flavors of rhubarb, Asian plums and Bing cherries. The tannins are soft and supple leading to a silky smooth finish. The 2011 vintage came with its share of weather related challenges during harvest however; we were able to successfully navigate this tricky vintage to produce an outstanding, full bodied wine.
