Rich with aromas of brown sugar, plum and baking spices with flavors of dusty oak, plum and cherry with rm annins and a long, smooth finish. Perfect when paired with a New York strip steak, grilled cheese with caramelized bacon or even a classically smoky pulled pork sandwich.

2019 was another fantastic vintage in California. In Sonoma County it started with a copious amount of rain saturating the soil in late winter and early spring. Early summer heat waves acclimated the vines to warmer weather, which allowed the grapes to withstand a later heat spell in August, moving the sugars higher and allowing flavors to ripen.
