Not actually a mountain, this region is more of a broad high pass that straddles this gap between the Mayacamas and Diamond Mountain.

Interestingly, this fruitiness diminishes substantially with subsequent sips, Completely resolved tannins. Still nice acid, though. Some slate or other minerality under the rear palate. Very enjoyable.. Read More
