Winemaker's Notes:

Sumptuous aromas of black cherry and plum are accentuated by a touch of warm cinnamon spice. Rich flavors of black currant and raspberry with a hint of earthy sage lead into a smooth, silky finish.

Pairs well with wild salmon with rosemary, turkey burgers or soft cheeses like Brie or Humbolt Fog.

About Echelon Vineyards:

Combining the best fruit from friends’ and neighbors’ vineyards, Echelon produces serious wines for everyday drinking. To obtain this exceptional fruit, Echelon pioneered the development of long-term contracts with growers in emerging regions, including areas within California’s Central Coast and the Clarksburg appellation’s Esperanza Vineyard. Echelon’s winery is located in San Miguel, in the heart of the Central Coast, near many of its vineyard sources. This state-of-the-art facility enables Echelon to take advantage of the latest technology throughout the winemaking process.

Echelon’s superb grapes and gentle winemaking result in fresh, fruit-forward wines. Beautifully balanced and pleasingly complex, these impressive premium wines are easy on the palate and the budget.
