Tasting notes

Reddish-purple in color with a rich and sweet, mouthwatering dark plum, black tea and leather on the nose. After a voluptuous entry, the wine explodes on the palate with black cherry, clove, cranberry and black currant with a long and balanced finish – the layers unfold in your mouth. This is a round, lush and well-integrated wine.

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

Food pairing notes

This wine is on the bigger side and therefore can handle more flavorful fish, like salmon, and can also accompany chicken and even meat dishes.

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.
