92 Points from Jeb Dunnuck

The 2017 Red Wine checks in as an interesting blend of 60% Syrah, 35% Merlot, and the rest Cabernet Sauvignon that was aged all in neutral barrels. There were a tiny 275 cases made. Its purple/plum color is followed by a spicy, dark-fruited red that has plenty of peppery herbs and meaty, herbal notes, medium body, a balanced, pure, polished texture, good acidity, and a great finish. Drink this complex, elegant, yet layered red any time over the coming 5-7 years. It has loads to love and certainly over-delivers.

A handsome red, well-built and polished, with expressive blackberry, peppered meat and licorice notes that gather richness toward refined tannins. Syrah, Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon. Drink now through 2028.

 

Winemaker Notes

Three different varieties comprise the perfect blend for our Sonoma County red wine. A base of 60% Syrah combines with 35% Merlot and a touch of Cabernet Sauvignon, which the remaining 5%. Generous sunshine during the day and cooler temperatures at night allow for the perfect ripening of the precious berries. Blackcurrant, blackberries and notes of cedar from the Merlot blend in full harmony with the generous and ripe Syrah tannins. Cabernet Sauvignon adds a final touch of succulent flavors and notes of cocoa and graphite.
