Creamy mocha and vanilla merge with the brambly berry essence for a delicious finish.Vineyards:The West Vineyard and the Funsten Vineyard sit a little above the valley floor on the benchland of Dry Creek Valley. The soils at both have a larger percentage of clay and gravel resulting in lower yields of intensely flavored and balanced fruit.
