From one of the estate's west-sloping blocks, this wine sizzles in acidity, with seductive layers of kirsch, maraschino cherry and raspberry, counterbalanced by Carneros earth and spice. Lengthy and full bodied, it's luxurious and beautiful, integrated in oak, with a lengthy end note of orange peel spiked in cloves.
