Kazmet Vineyard, Redwood Valley
The head-pruned vines from Kazmet Ranch, CCOF Organic Certified, are dry farmed, providing concentrated old vine flavors. This wine has jammy aromas of blackberry pie with undertones of sage and green peppercorn. It exhibits flavors of brambly berry, dark plum, and peach with notes of licorice and sandalwood. Medium-bodied, rich and round in the mouth with noticeable acidity focusing the persistent fruit on the finish. A small addition of Petite Sirah (10%) adds a little tannin structure and complexity to the blend. Aged for 18 months in French oak barrels (20% new).
