Named in honor of our incredible Winemaking team, led by Rob Takigawa, this blend consists of hand-selected barrels (each from a specific block or clone) to develop this complex and delicious wine. Notes of strawberries and cherries burst from the glass and are framed by notes of baking spice, a tad of cola, and vanilla.

The 2020 growing season featured a mild start to summer which allowed the grapes to ripen slowly. The region saw much warmer harvest temperatures which helped accelerate ripening and bring the grapes’ natural acidity into beautiful balance.
