Aromas: Soft and elegant with aromas of lifted red fruits; rhubarb and sour cherry. Notes of lemon zest and crème fraîche. 
Flavors: Compelling and bright with high energy. Structured, layered tannins backed with slight minerality. Thoughtful, layered oak undertone.
Winemaker Notes: “Over the years, we’ve been fortunate to work with many great vineyards. We continue to work carefully with select growers that farm in and around our Sebastopol home. There is often a recognizably full mouthfeel and texture to the wines from the area – a common thread to the components of this blend and a feature we are drawn to every year. This vintage was much more compact due to extreme heat in early September that created a mad dash to harvest as much fruit as possible at peak quality.”
