Winemakers Notes

The aromas of maraschino cherries, wild berry fruits, sassafras, toffee and rose petal will fill your nose. The round, rich tannins allow this full-bodied wine to illustrate flavors of cherries, blackberry, root beer, fennel and caramel that are common to the 2004 vintage. Most of the fruit is from the Russian River Valley vineyards, and the natural acidity helps the clean, long finish to end with lingering hints of berry pie.
—Winemaker Bob Cabral

A cooling trend in mid-September offered the Chardonnay additional hang time prior to harvest.
