"This full-bodied but silky-textured wine boasts ultraripe blackberries, dried plums and hints of earth and dried sage, without feeling heavy. Light tannins and richness leave it tasting sweet on the finish." *Editor's Choice*

Vinous Reverie Notes
Winery: A “trig” has been used for many years to establish boundary lines. Trigonometrical stations were set on the top of hills and used as surveying sites. Just as my father was a land surveyor and used these trigs as a reference, so do I when it comes to well-known vineyard sites. The Railyard Vineyard sits just north of the town of Geyserville and was planted in pre-phylloxera times on St. George rootstock. Vines planted on this “old fashioned” rootstock show more vigor than when planted on the more modern AXR1 type. St. George also requires much less water, a key benefit, as California just posted some of the the driest years on record. Tasting Notes: This wine is dark purple-red in color. It has the classic nose of this area of ripe black cherry, plum, gravel and gun flint with beautiful oak spice. It is a deep wine with many layers with black fruits and an even weight throughout the palate. Full of round, silky tannins that do not overpower the minerality and long finish.
