Subtle new oak notes with bright Bing cherry, white pepper and clove. On the palate, cranberry, pomegranate and red raspberry wrap together with spiciness that is classic to the region. The wine is lush, mid-weight and has a long finish.

Fruit of 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.
