VINEYARD:Vineyards 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 fl avor. Planted in 2001 to clones 115, 667, 777 and Pommard, all on 101-14 rootstock, the Tobonis 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.
TASTING NOTES:Opulent fruit aromas of dark cherry, plum, and blueberry jam rapidly emerge as the wine fills the glass. A quick swirl lends layers of rose petals and violets that marry with elements of vanilla bean and cedar. This wine is voluminous, displaying an extraordinary mid-palate, firm tannins, and a decadently full bodied structure from start to finish.
