    A tour de force of a wine with great concentration and a wine made for the long haul. 100% whole cluster this year meaning stem inclusion brings out the true Terroir of this Vineyard. I am very excited that with each year our hands on involvement with the farming of these grapes increases, it allows us to reach my vision of quality and perfection. Great Raspberry and Red fruit rush from the glass aided by those stems. Great Tannin, acid make for a full mouth invasion that’s not heavy but lingers for minutes on the finish. As I have said many times, my inspiration comes from the fabled wines of Burgundy and because of this our wines have a goal, a focus! This wine has similar tannins, acid and balance like a great Burgundy with a little California flare. Because we don't chaptalize (the addition of sugar to achieve a higher alcohol and ripeness), I believe we are true to our vision even beyond those great wines. I will always receive detractors with those types of comments, but if you’re going to make sacrifices to achieve something special then have big shoulders. Let your palate be your guide!
