I have been working with this site since 2006 when it was ‘merely’ a fine component of our Russian River Valley and/or Sonoma County bottlings. Over time I realized it truly deserved to have at least a small amount bottled separately to showcase its lovely signature. Maraschino and tart pie Cherry, fresh plum, pomegranate, and oregano all cascade given varying amounts of air time. One bottle was going strong after 6 days’ open. The focus and intensity of the darker colored fruits rose as the days progressed, which portends great things down the road. The bright, crisp acidity which is a real signature of this part of Russian River Valley gives a good salivary response. It is right across the creek and somewhat uphill from the Keefer Vineyard. Yet it has more of a dark fruit note than its neighbor as I recall having worked with Keefer fruit once in the 2006 vintage.
