Complex and full-bodied with raspberry, plum, and dried herbs on the nose. In the glass, dark fruits with clove, cedar, and earth.
James MacPhail's Notes
400-year-old redwoods surround the Putnam Vineyard and are scattered in many areas throughout the vineyard itself, protecting vines from summer sun and ensuring temperatures remain consistent - a crucial aspect of grape development. The coastal climate and the Goldridge sandy loam soils result in wines with plenty of richness and structure, evolving beautifully over the years.
