Winemaker Notes: “Notes of black cherry, evergreen, cedar and brambles mix with hints of dried citrus peel and wood spices to make up this intriguing and highly aromatic wine. This section of the Drake Vineyard is a spectacular site that sits on a hillside above the Russian River on the very far edge of the appellation. Nestled amongst groves of redwood trees, it is not surprising to find aromas of the forest in this wine. Seductive on the palate, the tannins are mouth coating with excellent acid drive. Deep and brooding flavors of black cherry saturate the palate along with savory notes. The wine has a sap to the middle that clings to the palate while finishing with elements of cedar.”
