Gold Medal - 2016 Sonoma County Harvest Fair
Distinguished aromas of wild blackberry, black cassis and orange tea leaf greet your senses. Flavors of dried cherry, tobacco leaf and old leather coat the palate, with additional decanting that encourages notes of rhubarb and allspice. The ample tannins linger along with the finish, leaving
behind flavors of marrionberry, black peppercorn, and toasted cedar.
Perfect Pairing: Superb structure and tannins make this an ideal pairing for skillet-seared flank steak drizzled in whiskey peppercorn sauce or venison Tourtière topped with wild cranberry jam.
