Gorgeous red hues and shimmer in light. This wine leads with those wonderful aromas of bright red fruit combined with spice and minerals. It is delicate and beautifully balanced with red fruit and floral scents. It delivers many layers, leading with red fruits like pomegranate, raspberry and fresh cranberry that you expect from the Sonoma Coast. The mid-palate is loaded with minerals and earth tones. It eases gracefully to the back where white pepper and other exotic spices carry on into a long langorous finish that lingers for minutes
Grapes were picked before sunrise, hand-sorted and de-stemmed then cold-soaked for five days before going through whole berry fermentation and receiving two punch-downs per day. Fermentation took approximately 12-16 days in an open top five-ton fermentation tank and the wine was then racked to barrels.
Barrel Program: 30% new French Oak, 30% one-year-old French Oak and 40% older. Wine remained in barrel for ten months with one racking at five months during blending.
