Grapes for this wine hail from both the cooler Green Valley subsection of the overlapping Russian River Valley and Sonoma Coast appellations, as well as from the Petaluma Gap, which is affected strongly by fog and wind. The result is a wine that opens in ripe aromas of raspberry and cherry before offering black tea and savory herb around a light-to-medium body and finish.
