This vineyard beautifully captures the subtle herbal and earthy characteristics of the AVA, bringing peppery highlights to ripe fruit flavors of strawberry preserves. The glorious aromatics begin with lavender and run through blackberries and a suggestion of toast. As with previous vintages, its purity, focus, precision and elegance are exceptional.
