With idyllic weather from start to finish, 2018 was one of the finest growing seasons of the past decade. Each wine within the Appellation Series embodies the unique qualities we cherish from the regions we work with.
Sixty-five miles north of our winery in Sebastopol, CA is the critically-acclaimed little-known AVA of Anderson Valley. This rustic, unparalleled location has had a history of producing world-class wines and its potential has only begun to be tapped into. We are thrilled to now introduce the inaugural release of this Appellation Series blend sourced from varying elevations of our Estate vineyard, Cerise, showcasing the upper reaches of Anderson Valley, as well as from Ferrington Vineyard on the valley floor.
To capture the grace of Anderson Valley and retain the freshness, a large portion of this blend was fermented in concrete further creating an inspiring dichotomy of elegant rusticity. This wine has powerful black cherry notes and pleasantly structured tannins.
Nose: Bramble, with notes of blueberry compote & dried cranberry.
Mouth: Elegant rusticity. Powerful black cherry component with a long palate and firm but pleasantly structured tannins.
