Another new single-vineyard wine that had been going into the Eastside Road Neighbors since 2008. A very aromatic wine that is composed primarily of Dijon clones 777 & 115, with a small amount of Swan in the blend. Bright cherry fruits, fennel and star jasmine radiate in the aroma of this wine. Concentrated raspberry and cherry fruits, anise and toasted vanilla beans coat the palate along with rich, supple tannins. A more fruit-forward wine that is worth aging for 4-6 years.
"Vivid ruby-red. Highly perfumed, vibrant aromas of black raspberry, anise, blood orange and pungent flowers. Dense but penetrating, offering juicy red and dark berry flavors and showing very good concentration. Finishes silky and long, with fine-grained tannins adding grip."
