This is a quietly powerful wine that wraps deep black-cherry and cranberry flavors in a firm but smooth texture of fine-grained tannins and full body. It has a satisfying sense of depth to the ripe fruit and subtle oak-spice accents, and a polished mouthfeel that seals the deal. Best through 2025.
The grapes for the 2015 vintage were chosen from Largo Ridge Vineyard which is on the east bank of the Russian River and the Damiano Vineyard located just south of our tasting room in Hopland. The wine has a beautiful black cherry character with distinct Cabernet aromas and flavors of cassis, cocoa, tobacco leaf & beautiful dark fruits. This full-bodied and balanced wine lingers on the finish with slight hints of vanilla and spice from the French oak barrels it was aged in.
