Winemaker's Notes

An expression of hilltop fruit from our Los Carneros estate, this wine is driven by notes of rose petals, black tea and licorice. The flavors are quite expansive, with black cherry, raspberry and dark plum tones bringing out the broad and supple mouthfeel of this Small Lot bottling.
