Notes of black plum, clay earth, cardamom and lavender. With a juicy, luscious, and vibrant mid-palate of blackberry and homemade crisp pie crust layered to create an expressive and inviting bouquet. Layers of black fruit flood the palate of this plush and velvety wine, which is held aloft by taut acidity and supple tannins.
Pair with braised red meat and roasted wild mushrooms.
Todd Brothers Ranch was planted in 1958 in the hills above Geyserville. Thick, head trained vines wind up a steep slope of shallow, red volcanic soil that limits yields and increases concentration in the small berries that these vines struggle to produce. The refined intensity and opulent structure are hallmarks of this extraordinary vineyard, farmed today by third and fourth generation Todd family members.
