The cabernet sauvignon fruit for this wine was handpicked from our 50-acre vineyard site located at our winery in Redwood Valley, CA. Bordered to the east by the Russian River and situated at 764 feet in elevation, this vineyard was first certified organic in 2007.
After completing primary and secondary fermentation, this wine was gently racked into barrels where it rested for 18 months before final blending. Aged in 30% new French oak, this wine displays a beautiful deep ruby hue with alluring aromas of dark cherries, blackberries and sage. On the palate, the layered flavors of black currant, cocoa and espresso give way to notes of roasted nuts and baked blackberry pie. Supple, rounded tannins provide for a balanced mouthfeel and an elegant, velvety finish.
