Winemaker's Notes

This beautiful head-pruned and dry-framed vineyard sits on sloping gravelly soils in Mendocino's cool climate Redwood Valley. The old vines and limited production of less than 2 ton per acre create an environment for intensely flavored grapes.

This exotically colored wine from a Northern California cool climate shows great balance with a good acid and tannin backbone. It also possesses an intense fruit-driven bouquet showing black cherries, currants and dark plums with elements of black pepper, anise and violets. This wine will age well for 10 to 15 years and pairs well with peppered beef carpaccio or grilled lamb chops.

Rosenblum Cellars Winery is located in the historic Todd Shipyard Building in the City of Alameda. The picturesque building constructed around 1910 sits right at the edge of San Francisco Bay. Our view is spectacular, and the cooling bay breezes give us natural air conditioning. The grapes for our wines come from over 30 different vineyards located in Napa, Sonoma, Paso Robles and Contra Costa County. Many of the vineyards are over 75 years old, head-pruned and dry farmed. The old plow on our labels symbolizes our down-to-earth and natural style of winemaking.
