Fact Sheet

The 6-acre Planchon Vineyard was planted in 1902 in alluvial sand with no irrigation, in a warm inland corner of the Sacramento River Delta. These gnarly old head-trained vines are growing on their own deep roots, and they produce fruit with immense character and round, spicy, caramel flavors.

Winemaker Notes:

Beautiful nose of sage, blackberry and milk chocolate, touch of caramel and cedar from the oak, bit of dusty earth. Almost Cabernet-like in its profile, from the kiss of green herbs to nicely structured tannins. Bright acidity while still creamy, and a plush, long finish.
