This wine offers the wild, blue fruit flavors that are signatures of the vineyard, this bottling spotlights the robust structure and age-worthy tannins of grapes grown on the exposed, washed-rock soils of Gowan Creek’s steep hillside sections.

Winemaker Notes
With a bouquet filled with aromas of black cherry, licorice, lilac, fennel and savory earth tones redolent of pencil lead, this wine displays its robust hillside roots. On the palate, a wild berry and cherry cola entry leads to a plush, expansive mid-palate framed by supple, yet age-worthy tannins and a streak of bright acidity. Enticing hints of strawberry, sweet oak, spice and cinnamon candy add depth to a complex and lingering finish.
Production
The 2009 harvest began at a measured pace in our Confluence and Gowan Creek vineyards, before the arrival of a ten-day heat wave. This heat wave was beneficial for two main reasons. Not only did it push the fruit in the warmer end of our valley to perfect ripeness, it allowed the vineyards in the colder “deep end” to catch up from a cool growing season. Just as important, the heat was followed by an extended cool-down, which essentially “held” the fruit in perfect balance as we picked block by block to garner the best wines.
