A perfumed nose of rose petals, dark cherry, rhubarb and wild strawberry with white pepper and cinnamon spice notes. Lovely fresh rose, cherry, plum and cola on the palate with hints of five spice and cardamom. Smooth, silky tannins with a long succulent finish.

Dried cherry and berry flavors dominate this fleshy version. Savory spice notes emerge midpalate, with a finish of dried meat and underbrush. Drink now through 2022. 3,703 cases made.

Bold and effusively aromatic in rose petal and earth, this wine has an intensity of black cherry and tangy strawberry on the midpalate and an abundance of acidity.

Pale to medium ruby-purple in color, the 2017 Pinot Noir gives up notes of Bing cherries, raspberry leaves and lavender with touches of cranberries, forest floor and dried herbs. Medium-bodied, the palate is delicately styled with a gentle, chewy texture and plenty of earth-laced red berry flavors, finishing with an herbal lift.
