TASTING NOTES
Full-bodied with a dense red-purple hue, this wine opens up with aromas of fresh berry cobbler, orange zest, leather and tobacco. On the palate, lush flavors of huckleberry, dark cherry and bittersweet chocolate are interlaced with nuances of cracked black pepper and hickory smoke. These fruit-driven flavors are balanced with a smooth texture, supple tannins, vibrant acidity and a warm, spicy finish.

WINEMAKER NOTES
The 2018 growing season began cooler than usual for Sonoma County, leading to longer bloom time for grapevines. Moderate summer temperatures with fewer heat spikes than previous vintages allowed for a relaxed pace, excellent development of flavors and retention of natural acidity. A later harvest produced wines with structure, acidity and balance.

FOOD PAIRINGS
Enjoy these generous flavors with blue cheese, juicy tri-tip sandwiches, barbecued baby back ribs, slow roasted stews, flourless chocolate cake or fine cigars by the fireplace after dinner.
