Winemaker's Notes

The result of grafting budwood from a century-old vineyard onto new rootstock, this impressive wine is the next generation of classic ‘old vines' flavors from Dry Creek Valley. Luscious raspberry and cherry aromas precede intriguing baking spice notes. Juicy, concentrated berry components blossom into textured flavors, revealing a slight earthy quality and dusting of mint.
