The hand picked fruit from the small lot, single vineyard bottling come from a small family plot less than a mile from our winery in St. Helena. Aromas of dried blackberry, kirsch, almonds and bittersweet chocolate are framed with a pleasant earthy, bramble backbone. We enjoy pairing this wine with roasted pork loin or a mild blue cheese, such as gorgonzola.
