From grapes grown on a higher spot on the estate vineyard with Altamont soils, where the dirt is thin and the vines struggle, this wine delivers a depth of structure and incredible flavor. It finds a way to coax sage and wild forested earth from a robustness of cranberry and bright, citrusy acidity.
