On the nose: black cherries, strawberries, vanilla and anise. On the palate: cherries, red fruit, vanilla, rose, hibiscus. Smooth mouthfeel with a very long finish.
"Medium-light ruby; attractive, fragrant, floral, cherry and raspberry fruit aroma with hints of clove, cinnamon, mocha, and damp earth; medium body; rich, fleshy, elegant, red fruit flavors with bright acidity and a slight creaminess in the mouthfeel; medium tannin; lingering aftertaste. Enjoyable to drink now or over the next year or two. Very highly recommended. 90 Points!" - California Grapevine Review

We are thrilled with Oehlman vineyard fruit and thank the Oehlman family for tending to their vines consistently throughout the decades! This is one of our most sought-after red wines, especially as of late. This vintage barrel aged for 18 months in 50% new French Oak. Pinot Noir Clones: Martini and Dijon 115 clone.
