The town of Boonville, formerly known as “The Corners,” serves as the eastern gateway to the Anderson Valley. This estate vineyard, located just on the outskirts of Boonville, has steep hillsides, rugged terrain, and light gravelly soils that combine to create optimal ripening conditions. Each year, the vineyard produces fruit of great depth and character.

Warm spice and baked plum on the nose. Flavors of crushed pomegranate, hibiscus, and chocolate covered cherries . Smooth, yet dynamic palate that delivers a long and fruity finish.

91 points - Wine Spectator
"The ripe, vibrant dark berry fruit picks up anise and cedar notes. Very complete and deftly balanced, ending with a long, smooth, lingering after taste that keeps the berry flavors at the forefront. Drink now through 2022." - Jim Laube
