Under the threatening sky, BESIEGED by rain clouds, lightening glinting in the hills, winemaker Joel Peterson worked alone to collect grapes destined for one of his debut wines. As he worked, ravens cackled from above, but instead of being harbingers of doom, they brought him good fortune, becoming the totem for the winery.
Dark, rich, full flavors ignite your senses with blackberry, black cherry, plum, and cardamom, resolving into delicious, smooth, satisfying finish.
What seemed to be a subtle, yet unique, plum and fruity aromatic flavor transitioned into an immense flavor of black cherry and spice. So very smooth and delicious.
