Winemaker's Notes:

Fruit, flowers, spice, mineral and earth; this wine exhibits all of these elements both aromatically and in the form of flavor. Red fruits are abundant on the nose - currants and marionberry, cherry and pomegranate, which turn towards raspberry, blueberry and boysenberry on the palate. There are violets and sweet peas, if one chooses to find them, nestled against cinnamon stick, gingerbread, clean stones and fresh turned earth. This wine is vibrant, confectionary and layered with a freshness and mineral quality, shaped by clean lines and a lingering, persistent finish.
