Product Description

Tasting notes

Black current in color, there is a youthful dark cherry, roasted fig with cassis earthiness on the nose. Mouthwatering and juicy flavors of violet and pluot, sweet orange peel and jasmine tea. A long and lingering finish leaves you wanting more.

Balanced and complex, this wine is drinkable now, but should age nicely for another 10+ years.

Food pairing notes

Perfect with light and delicate food such as steamed or grilled fish and chicken.

Vineyard notes

The Sangiacomo’s Roberts Road Vineyard is a 130 acre vineyard; it is a well-drained site planted on a creek bed, initially planted in 1999. Because the fog can often remain until midday, the growing season is long and slow – allowing for nicely ripened fruit, with balanced sugars and acids allowing for complex flavor development. The vineyard is Certified Sustainable – CSWA – and grows cool climate Pinot Noir and Chardonnay. This is always one of our last vineyards to be picked.
