DESCRIPTION:This wine is not shy. Aromas of black cherry and currants leap from the glass, quickly followed by notes of cedar and allspice. A strong floral component marries the fruit bouquet, while leaving room for the subtle influence of the new French oak. In the mouth the first impression is berries, berries, berries, with raspberry, blueberry and blackberry all enjoying a turn. Pairing tip: A wonderful match for simply prepared ultra-fresh Pacific salmon, Portugese-style goat cheeses, raw-milk blue cheeses, or any number of cheeses from Sonoma dairies.
