Wonderful, fat strawberry, with coffee and chocolate characters. Ripe fruit and soft tannins make this a mouth-coating rich vintage.
100-year-old vineyards in Oakley with deep, sandy soil, cooled by breezes from the San Joaquin and Sacramento Rivers.
Harvested separately according to ripeness and balance of acidity. Gently crushed, fermented to extract rich flavors and provide excellent color, pressed off their skins and laid down to a complement of American oak cooperage for 7 months.
