Tasting Notes

Blackberry, black plum and other brambly fruit characteristic of Alexander Valley. “Graham crust” undertones typical of the Home Ranch terroir. Subtle hints of oak, briary acidity and a finish of ripe peach.

Food Pairing Notes

This wine pairs deliciously with gnocchi gorgonzola, barbeque meats – not too spicy, and blue cheese.

Vineyard Notes

Long, warm days aided by the absence of marine influence marks this site in Alexander Valley. The soils are composed of clay and clay loam with underlying layers of basalt, sandstone and volcanic rock. Vines are challenged by the low nutrient level of the clay and the shallow topsoil, both of which force the vines to produce more concentrated fruit.
