The nose is intense and mixing violet, rose and black cherry components. Grace and harmony show on the palate with a mix of gentle spice, violet, rose and red fruit dancing together. The depth and complexity of the wine is obvious and continues with a long and energetic finish. Around a core of mineral notes, it shows balance and freshness, a true picture of the best of what Anderson Valley can provide.
