Fruit for this vintage was sourced from several locations in the Russian River Valley, each vineyard site contributing critical, unique aspects to the complexity of the resulting wine. Vineyards located in the warmer end of the Russian River Valley contribute ripe fruit elements. Vineyards from the cooler areas lend a strong minerality and structural backbone, and vines at altitude with sandy, well-drained soil add complexity and structure.

Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
Aromas of bing cherry, fresh raspberry, and cranberry. Medium-bodied, the wine features excellent acidity and a lingering finish.
Ratings
91 Points-Wine Enthusiast: Light and perfumed, this is a structured, well-crafted wine that’s slightly savage in approach and sensibility. Spicy cinnamon and cola streak through red cherry and strawberry, flirting with the notion of forest and mushroom without ever diving overly deep. — V.B.
Production Notes
Grapes were hand-sorted and gently crushed. They underwent a seven-day cold soak followed by fermentation in open-top tanks with frequent punch-down by hand to enhance flavor extraction.
Winemaker Notes
The 2013 growing season was a near twin to the acclaimed 2012 vintage. Optimal conditions in spring and summer led to elongated hang time, resulting in enhanced flavors and acidity.
