Description

The velvety texture matches the deep garnet color of this elegant wine. Made from grapes grown in the shadow of the Geysers, the nose has aromas of warm minerals and wet leaf tobacco. The taste has notes of dark berries with evolving tannins and a balanced finish. This wine pairs well with thyme seasoned prime rib, brie-like cheeses (we like Cowgirl Creamery Mt. Tam triple cream), and hazelnut chocolate.

Production Notes

Made with Estate grapes and aged on premise in small French Oak barrels. This wine will peak with five to eight years of cellaring and will last many more.
