Premium vineyards in California’s Central Coast and Central Valley winegrowing regions were the fruit source for this wine. Immediately following harvest, the grapes were crushed and cold soaked for several days to harness color and flavor intensity. Fermentation and aging in stainless steel tanks followed, with some components enjoying subtle oak influence to help round out the wine’s flavors and add complexity. In the glass, this wine is a beautiful, deep ruby red color. On the nose, aromas of black cherry, blueberry and dark plum comingle with hints of savory, dried herbs. More dark fruit flavors of blackberry and plum are evident on the soft, round palate, which is complemented by lovely spicy notes. The wine’s juicy, berry flavors extend to a lingering finish, beautifully enhanced by soft, round tannins.
