Named in honor of our incredible Winemaking team, led by Rob Takigawa, this blend consists of hand-selected barrels (each from a specific block or clone) to develop this complex and delicious wine. With notes of bright cherry intertwined by spicier notes of cinnamon and clove, this medium-bodied wine has silky layers that conclude with a long, lingering finish.
