Tasting Notes

Tantalizing aromas of raspberry, Bing cherry, fig reduction, and savory herb blend harmoniously with the subtle notes of saucisson and steak tartare, giving this wine a vibrant personality that is impossible to resist. The palate is medium bodied with a supple, rounded texture and moderate tannin.

Vineyard Designation

Raboli Vineyard

Vineyard Notes

The Livermore Valley is an East-West oriented valley east of the San Francisco Bay, and west of the Altamont hills that separate the Bay Area from the Central Valley. The coastal fog that regularly move in and out of the valley moderate the warm days of the growing season and makes it an ideal location for growing wine grapes. It’s defining characteristic is the gravel that occupies most of the soil profiles throughout the valley and make for low vigor vines and highly concentrated wine.

Production Notes

Destemmed to tank and fermented on the skins for 12 days. Aged in 40% new French and Hungarian oak for 18 months and racked only once after primary fermentation.

Pairings

Enjoy this wine with a Herbes de Provence Encrusted Prime Rib or Wild Mushroom Pizza
