We love how this wine truly shows off both the terroir and climate of this gorgeous vineyard. With so much sunshine on these western facing vines, you can practically taste the rays coming through into the glass. In the glass, the wine is floral and fruity, a true California wine. On the palette the 25% whole cluster lends delicate spice to the bright blackberry note. This wine is velvet and a true crowd pleaser.
