The vineyards of the Sonoma Coast offer an unusually long, cool and steady growing season. Lingering fog and wind from the nearby Pacific Ocean moderate temperatures throughout the season and slow the ripening process. With an extended "hang" time on the vines, the results at harvest are small berries with firm acidity and highly concentrated varietal aromas and flavors.
"This special release offers up lively pie cherry aromas that mingle with alluring cocoa, allspice and black tea notes. Flavors of pomegranate combine with red plum and orange zest to deliver a well-balanced Sonoma Coast blend. Fine tannins and good concentration create a broad, supple mouthfeel that lingers well into the back palate."
