2015 Merlot, Sonoma County
The vineyard is perhaps the most Northern vineyard in the Russian River Valley, it sits on an ancient flood plain where the river meanders south through the northern hills of Healdsburg.
Deep reddish, blue notes that create a violet hue. Aromas of dried strawberries, plum, tobacco and coco. Pomegranate, and raspberries introduce the wine on your palate following with a hint of all spice and black pepper. The juicy, vibrant wine has so much to offer and will continue to develop. It has a elegance and softness to it that allows that spice, toasty oak and fruit shine. Drink now or can still hold on to for another 3-5 years.
