The Oehlman family has been farming their land on Vine Hill Road in the heart of Russian River Valley for five generations. We ferment the crushed grapes in small one-ton, open top fermenters. The small tanks allow us to closely control the fermentation temperature. We press out each lot as it reaches dryness in a small basket press to ensure gentle pressing and avoid extracting tannin. The pressed wine goes into 50% new French oak barrels for 18 months. This wine tastes great now, but we know from experience that it always tastes its best five years from the vintage. Now it is showing a bouquet of ripe cherry with hints of vanilla, spice and cola. Flavors of cherry and raspberry fill the palate and keep going with a rich, silky finish that begs for another sip.
