Our new Winemaker has offered us a new and intriguing blend of 40% Petit Verdot, 31% Cabernet Franc, 2% Merlot and 27% Cabernet Sauvignon. Amazing the variety of possibilities with Bordeaux wines!
From the Winemaker: The 2012 vintage was characterized by a very even ripening and balance, flawless grapes all over California.
From Alder Yarrow - July, 2015
Inky purple in the glass, this wine smells of blackberry and blueberry jam. In the mouth, blueberry jam and blackberry flavors mix with bright acidity and light powdery tannins. A deply mineral powdered stone quality still lingers through the finish, but the wine is quite ripe.
Score between 8 and 8.5
