Dry Creek Valley, Sonoma County, California
This is a big dense, full-flavored rendition of one of Sonoma County’s most scarce and special red wine grapes. Its blackberry and blueberry aromas are balanced by rich sweet oak and vanilla. Elusive blue fruit takes on layers of flavors and spice in the glass, becoming densely mouth-coating and intensely rich on the finish. The berry fruit is integrated seamlessly into a lush background of youthful tannins, with the flavors blending together in a rich, broad, big mouth filling long finish. 15 months in French Oak.
