Tasting Notes
Rich, concentrated aromas of black cherry, marionberry, and dried plums flood the glass. Black tea, tobacco, and cloves provide a counterpoint to the lush fruit profile and complete the package. The palate is fruit focused upon entry, but carefully balanced with silky tannins from extravagant French oak. The mouthfeel is ample in structure and the finish powerful, and exceptionally long.
Vineyard Notes
The Toboni Oakwild Ranch vineyard is located in the Santa Rosa Plain, just south of the winery. Each morning, the vineyard is bathed in fog that rises off the river and cools the vines, while sunny, warm days and breezy afternoons tend to heighten the intensity and complexity of the fruit flavor. Planted in 2001 to clones 115, 667, 777 and Pommard, all on 101-14 rootstock, the Toboni's have painstakingly matched soils and climate with optimal rootstock and clonal selections every step of the way. The soil is clay loam with some mineral and gravel composites. With a winegrowing triple threat of cool fog, sunny afternoons and excellent farming practices, this vineyard produces gorgeous wines with intense, complex earthy and spicy aromas, along with refined, ripe cherry, plum, cranberry and cola flavors.
