Bodega is surrounded by redwoods, wildflowers, coastal oaks and a beautiful assortment of plant life and native grasses. Hailing from just behind Bodega bay near the town of Freestone this cool hillside site starts with an intense, ruby red color.
Aromas of ripe black cherry, wild strawberry, coastal moss, and pomegranate lead to underlying notes of Moroccan mint and wet stone. On the palate the wine opens with bright acidity backed by youthful, fine grained-tannins. Flavors of wild dark berries, and crushed stone lead to a wonderfully long finish.
