Located in the Central Coast region of California, the Salinas Valley is also known as the Long Valley, a name coined by writer John Steinbeck due to its 100-mile length. Cradled between the Gabilan and Santa Lucia mountain ranges, this bountiful stretch was carved out by the Salinas River millions of years ago and holds some of the world's richest farm and vineyard land.
Bright aromas of currant and raspberry lead to flavors of cranberry, pomegranate and cherry. Delicate notes of fresh herbs and mocha are complemented by light vanilla from the French oak. This wine is medium-bodied, well-balanced and integrated with a soft, round mouthfeel and a lingering, red fruit finish.
Aging: 35% new French oak for 12 months, 65% neutral.
