Ben Lomond Mountain
Bald Mountain Vineyard
Garnett hues with fine transparency give off aromas off Bing cherries, dried cranberries and a touch of a dusty saddle. The nose lingers with hints of spice such as; fennel, anise and vanilla. The subtle earthiness of this wine is complemented by the generous amount of silky red fruits. This wine finishes long and dry showing great pinosity the entire way through.
