Even with a few years bottle age this wine is still bright ruby in color. On the nose aromas of light red fruits: cherry, raspberry, and strawberry mingle with tobacco and a slightly herbal note that hints at what you'll taste. It is silky and supple on the palate and with elevated acidity that makes this a very vibrant wine. On the finish you'll experience a bright cranberry note and a delicate earthiness. All the fruit is from the Floodgate Vineyard and is clone 777.
