Winemaker Notes

A wonderful bouquet of ripe fruits (blackcurrants, blackberries), crystallized fruit and spices. The wine offers depth on the palate and a pleasant sweet finish with long tannins and light spices.

Enjoy with grilled peppers, grilled red meats, paella and mature cheeses.

Blend: 50% Grenache, 35% Syrah, 15% Carignan

Critical Acclaim

WS 90
Wine Spectator

This offers the essence of blueberry, displaying touches of spicy elegance and a luscious mouthfeel. Very pure and well-structured, with a long, cocoa powder-infused finish. Drink now through 2018.

A source of Sonoma Cabernet that can rival its Napa Valley neighbors, the Alexander Valley is the hottest AVA in the county. This large and heavily planted appellation is only 25 miles from the coast, but it is relatively free of fog due to the sheltering effects of the mountain ranges in between. However, the Russian River, which runs through the valley, creates cool-climate pockets and soft, alluvial soil ideal for grape-growing.

In addition to Cabernet Sauvignon, which makes up over 50% of plantings, Merlot and other [Bordeaux] varieties as well as Zinfandel thrive here, all of which take on a bold and voluptuous personality. Ample, fleshy Chardonnay and Sauvignon Blanc dominate white wine production. Some old-vine plantings of Grenache have been discovered here, and more recent experiments with Sangiovese and [Barbera] show great promise.
