Winemaker's Notes:

This deep ruby-hued offering is comprised of fruit from some of the most select vineyards in our winery's neighborhood blended with selected lots from our exquisite Lindsay Estate Vineyard. The 2006 possesses notable backbone for a wine that is already revealing such abundant fruit upon release. A nose of plum and dusty rose precedes an eminently appealing palate that unfolds with layers of ripe plum and raspberry fruit in perfect balance with earthy notes of bittersweet cocoa and underbrush. The finish offers ripe, silky tannins with a touch of white pepper and cedar. Alcohol 14.7%
