Winemaker's Notes

Surrounding Russian Hill Winery is Tara Vineyard, named in honor of the stately home on the property. Block 1 of Tara Vineyard is on the southerly facing slope of lean soils and abundant river rock. A challenging site for grapegrowing, this block became the special project of owner Ellen Mack, who personally provides its viticultural care, from winter pruning to dropping fruit in the summer.

A velvety wine with rich, intense flavors of plums and cassis intertwined with cocoa, toffee and chocolate. A floral nose hints of orange peel and exotic spices. This is a beautiful wine with elegance and concentration that we expect will age gracefully for many years.
