Coast Grade Vineyard
Ben Lomond Mountain
November 1st, 2012
50% New American Oak
Hints of violet, dried sage and plum come together on the nose with a distinct salinity from the coastal fog that sits on the grapes. Cherry, fig, strawberry and light earthiness are present on the palate. With bright acidity, soft tannins and lingering spice on the finish.
