Dark, restrained yet substantial. Aromatics ranging from dark cherry/tart dark plum with a hint of mushroom and stone.
The wine is massive yet restrained at the same time. Round on the palette with ample tannins and overall moderate acidity. The wine shows definite aging potential to 2026.

Venturi Vineyard is located just north of Ukiah in the Calpella Valley on predominantly Pinole gravelly loam soils. Containing a mixture of sandstone, shale and quartz, these deep, well drained soils were formed from alluvial flows, depositing fist sized stones along the way. Highly deficient in organic matter, the moderately acidic soil PH allows for optimal nutrient uptake to allow the vines to thrive Pinole soils are some of the most sought after soil types in Mendocino County.
