ABOUT THIS WINE

Be careful, this wine is a monster. Steep slopes and poor soil make retaining water in these vineyards very difficult. The result is smaller berries, which means a more skin to juice ratio. The skin is where the compounds responsible for color and mouth feel are found, and this wine has plenty of both. These vineyards also sit high on Rockpile Ridge, above the fog line, where the sun shines more often making it warmer. This dries out the fruit, just a little, just enough to intensify the flavors of cherry, strawberry jam, and chocolate, highlighted with hints of vanilla and black currant.
