With an average vine age of over 100 years old, it’s tempting to label this wine as “Reserve.” Just look at the vineyards in this wine! All vineyard designates in their own right! Six percent new French oak, the wine was bottled unfined and unfiltered.

Tasting Note: This blend boldly collects all the scents and flavors of the Russian River Valley – redwood, cinnamon, rhubarb, red cherry and lifted notes of strawberries and cream.  A very harmonious and friendly wine that provides a spicy palate, with hints of Jolly Rancher candy and cranberry.  Bottled under screw cap, this is the perfect “go to” Thanksgiving wine.  Turkeys beware!  Drink 2017 – 2025.
