Winemaker's Notes

Produced exclusively from grapes grown in Sonoma Valley, this wine has exceptional fresh fruit flavors. A pleasant berry taste, combined with a dash of spice, is evident in the taste. Include the aging in carefully selected French oak barrels and you have a wonderful drinking wine.
