The core of this blend comes from our Chen's Vineyard planted in 1972 in Dry Creek Valley. This site is named after the gravelly loam soils prevalent up and down Dry Creek Valley. Due to the prevailing afternoon breezes in Dry Creek Valley, the flavor profile tends towards red fruit.

Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
Bright aromas of dark cherry and black raspberry. Upfront fruit appeal supported with underpinnings of complexity and slight white pepper spice. Soft entry develops into warm, full mid-palate. Finish strikes ideal balance of tannins, fruit and acidity.
Food Pairing Notes
Herb-rubbed meats, spicy cuisine and hearty pastas

Chen's Vineyard

The stronger marine influence of Dry Creek Valley keeps it cooler than Alexander Valley. In a normal season, Cortina will ripen later due to the prevailing afternoon breezes that typically temper the summer's heat. With mornings shrouded in fog during the summer months, this ranch’s diverse soils consist primarily of a gravelly loam called Cortina.
