Classic Wildcat Mountain! On the nose; effusive notes of mineral, slate, rich soil, oyster shell, mesquite and dust that lead into a tight, bright, juicy, savory and racy palate of plum, black tea, strawberry and chile relleno. The finish is a delicious mix of raspberry, cracked pepper and violets, and just goes on and on…
Situated high on the southern flank of the mountain range defining the western edge of Sonoma Valley, Wildcat Mountain Vineyard lies just outside and above the Los Carneros appellation at 600-750’ above sea level, it sits on well-drained soils of volcanic origin, exposed to the full brunt of fog and cold airflow that streams off the upper reaches of San Pablo Bay.
