2008 Sonoma Mountain Pickberry Vineyard

Joel Peterson began working with this vineyard in 1986, the vines planted by Chris Strotz in 1982. Mostly merlot and cabernet sauvignon, this latest release starts out black, generously tannic in scents of mushrooms and pine, with a grand red fruit presence that plumps up in the glass. Over the course of several days, the wine gains energy, its initial richness turning silky, its tannins spicy and fresh as they rocket the fruit past the horizon line. Cellar this for ten years to get the most out of the bottle. (600 cases)
