"Our well-known Jumping Goat vineyard located in the AVA of St. Helena was harvested later in 2016 than the previous year. A beautiful growing season yielded spectacular quality. The wine aromatically boasts lush, bright raspberry fruit along with cloves, crushed rock and its signature perfumed characters. Superbly creamy and layered, there is amazing freshness and tension to the wine and it is simultaneously very seductive and strong. Multi-dimensional with incredible density in the mid-palate of dark fruits yet finishes with sublime red fruits." - Winery
