Aromas of ripe, black cherry and brambleberry reveal hints of sun-warmed rose, forest loam and a savory umami herbaceousness. High-toned notes of sweet baking spices, from French oak barrels, weave through the aromas and linger on the berry-imbued finish.


Supple, fine-grained tannins structure the wine, while natural acidity gives it elegant balance and vibrancy, all backed by a classic Carneros earthiness.
