Dark garnet in color, this wine brims with aromas of rose petal and cherry laced with sweet tobacco and cedar. Polished tannins and succulent flavors of Santa Rosa plum, blackberry, almond biscotti and toffee envelop the palate leading to a velvety finish. The 2014 vintage saw early bud break and a consistently warm spring and summer leading to an early harvest characterized by even ripening and mature tannins. Pair with horseradish crusted beef tenderloin and roast duck with cherry rosemary sauce. Drink now through 2030.
