Winery Exclusive Wine

Dark ruby in color, the wine radiates brandied cherry and light menthol aromas. Fresh thyme and tarragon join the rich blackberry flavor with a hint of tobacco leaf. Picking up a light sweetness in the finish, the wine is nicely balanced and textured.

Wine Profile
Production Notes
In spite of all the interesting challenges nature handed us in 2014, it will go down in the record books as another year where amazing quality and quantity seemed like an easy task. The year started out with the drought at the top of our minds, but a very welcomed rain storm during bud break set the vines up for great success in the growing season with perfectly timed moisture. The summer had warm, even days which helped along perfectly developing berries. Harvest began in late August, only to have an earthquake rock our worlds half way through picking Sauvignon blanc. The winery was spared any damage, but our Carneros vineyard now has a rather large crack right through the middle. We carried on, like all farmers do, through an even paced harvest that has resulted in amazing color, flavor and textures in the wines that bring us great joy.
