The wine’s delicate limpid garnet color belie’s the wine's deep and resonant spirit. The fruit derives from two sustainably farmed vineyards in Russian River Valley: West Pin (Twomey’s estate) and Crinella. Sweet ripe notes of red berries, green fruits, and graphite frame clear ruby acidity and savory mid-palate. A spritely lift at the finish balances the wine and polishes it to a luster. Brilliant and delicious, serious and lovely, all at once. 13.9% abv | $50 (sample)

Bright red raspberry, cranberry, red cherry. Floral nose. Delicate, crisp, and balanced. Perfect for a heaping of Thanksgiving turkey and cranberry sauce.

Perfect Russian River typicity. Seductive floral jamminess with a soft but vibrant acidity on the finish.

2013 vintage. Bright translucent ruby color, med bodied. Ripe red cherry, plum, pepper, earth, leather. Silky mouthfeel, balanced tannins, long tasty finish.

Well balanced with medium complexity. Slight cherry on nose and taste with good finish. Not fruit forward like many in California but more balanced akin to a Cali version of s burgundy Pinot.
