Wine begins with lush layers of baked alpine strawberry, cinnamon and clove on the French toast spice-laden nose. The sip is taut in texture, delivering complex and deep flavors of strawberry, sagebrush, rose petal and bay leaf oil in unending waves of expression.

Fruit was 70% destemmed, cold soaked for 4 days and fermented with native yeasts. Aged for 16 months.

Crafted from 40-year-old vines in Block Q at Bien Nacido Vineyards. Picked in two lots, separating the fruit on the upper and lower portion of the hillside.
