The grapes come from estate vineyards in the Sonoma and Russian River valleys, as well as from growers in Sonoma County's other top appellations, including Alexander Valley and Rockpile. All grapes are hand harvested, gently destemmed and crushed before cold soaking to extract optimal color and flavor. The fruit is then inoculated with many different yeast strains to build complexity, and fermented in separate lots using a combination of pump-overs and rack-and-return to soften tannins. The wine is matured in oak barrels.

Aromas of currant, cedar and tomato leaf lead to appealing cherry and herb flavors. A solid Merlot from a tough vintage. Drink now through 2018. 450 cases made.

Heavy on the oak, this soft, rounded estate-made Merlot brims in red fruit and herb. A bit of a mouthful now, it should evolve in the bottle and in the glass, burning off some of the wood over time.
