Winemaker Jon Phillips Notes
The predominant fruit source for this wine comes, Brian Gallaway whose ranch is located just outside the town of Healdsburg on West Dry Creek Road. Brian’s grapes are grown on an eastern facing hillside vineyard along the western slope of the Dry Creek Valley; producing a distinctive wine rich with warm berry flavors. In 2008, we were able to source a small amount of Merlot from Rock Pile, a sub-appellation of Dry Creek. In addition, we found a little Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc from Sonoma Valley’s Monte Rosso Vineyard, making this one of our most special Cabernet Sauvignon’s that we have produced to date. Tasting Notes: Full bodied with soft, non-astringent tannins, rich with flavors of cassis and blackberry and m ...more... ocha. What’s great about this wine is that in its young age, you can enjoy it now. We also feel that it will only get better with age.
