This is our fourth vintage from the famous Occidental Vineyard in the Sonoma Coast appellation of California. The 2009 vintage provided us with meager yields from heavily shattered clusters. However, the finished wine has fantastic concentration of flavors and texture. Aged in 100% new French oak for 16 months, this wine represents the crown jewel of Evening Land’s portfolio in California. An explosive aroma of wild cherries, hints of cinnamon and freshly sanded cedar, precede flavors of summer red fruits, hints of citrus and an unbelievably long, silky texture.
