14.4% alc., 250 cases, $42. From a 6-acre vineyard on Burnside Road. Clones 115, Swan and Calera. Gold Medal Sonoma County Harvest Fair. · Moderately light reddish purple color in the glass. Deep black cherry aroma with a pleasing hint of spice. The mid weight plus core of Bing cherry fruit is quite flavorful and accented with notes of cola and smoky oak. Impeccable balance with submerged tannins and a generous and juicy cherry finish. Score: 90. Reviewed December 12, 2015
