Tasting notes

2015 was another prime vintage with moderate temperatures throughout the spring and summer. Concentrated wild strawberry and Bing cherry meld together with redwood forest aromas on the nose. Smooth with soft tannins, the wine’s silky texture brings forth a palate full of juicy red berry fruits with hibiscus flower wrapped around decadent dark chocolate. Its elegant finish and balanced acidity make it a versatile food-pairing wine. Enjoy with roasted pork tenderloin, or a grilled salmon with berry sauce.
