2011 Home Run Cuvée "Kick Ranch Vineyard"

Sonoma County

Tasting Notes

The 2011 Home Run Cuvée continues to impress us, and has changed dramatically through aging.  When the wines finished malolactic fermentation, they were tightly wound and unapproachable.  After some time in barrel, they started to exhibit soft, welcoming and delicate nuances.  The aroma reveals white pepper, savory herbs and rose oil.  Truffles, saffron and tar lead into black cherry, plum and gravel.  The palette is long and concentrated through the finish.
