“Flower” in the native Chumash language of Samala.
This ruby colored wine is brooding with aromatics of rose petals, violets, raspberry, clove, and maraschino cherries. This medium-bodied wine is perfectly balanced between its impressively lively acidity and elegant structure. The blueberries, Chinese five spices, mint, and sweet tobacco introduce you to a softer texture and rounded, dry tannins. It is perfectly balanced with supple beauty while still being robust. This long, supple finish with smooth tannins that resonate on your palate and entices another sip.
