This follow up to our award winning 2012 and is made with 100% Ribbon Ridge AVA fruit, sourced entirely from the old “Saikkonen Vineyard”; it was bottled May 15th 2015 and was released on November first. This wine shows all the potential of our 2012.
This wine is a dark ruby and garnet hue with deep plum and violet undertones. The nose is rich with deep aromas of black cherry, tobacco, cola and hints of cedar and sandalwood. The attack is bright with stone fruit and the acidity reminiscent of fresh strawberries, followed in the mid-palate with weighty, yet smooth tannins which flow into a long spicy finish. Only three barrels were produced.
