Rated "92" by Wine Enthusiast, Aug., 2016: "It’s amazing how this super-concentrated wine smells like chocolate cherries and tastes almost like blackberry syrup, yet it’s nice and dry in style. A firm coating of fine tannins gives grip on the tongue and seems to extend the juicy fruit and dark chocolate notes on the finish." The vineyard from which this wild wine was sourced is over 100 years old, remaining untainted as an unrelenting suburban sprawl has grown around it like ivy. Luckily, as generations flowed from one into the next in Contra Costa County, a collective wisdom and reverence prevailed, protecting and sustaining this precious plot through the years. Vines of this age are rare and coveted as they produce wines of character and intrigue. This well-made wine offers a complex profile of fresh mint, earth, and black and blue fruits.
