<p>Hugo is the dominant soil in redwood regions such as Russian River Valley. As it weathers, this soil changes color, from grey to yellow to brown and finally red with old age. This red wine was produced from 100 % Zinfandel grapes from deep alluvial soils on the cool east side of the Russian River. It is open top fermented and then aged for 11 months in French oak.</p>
