Tribute is more than just a Cabernet, it's a destination; it's an experience. Allow its ample aromas of plum, dewberry, blackberry and tea to move your senses toward our Sonoma borough. Understanding the complexity this wine is able to explicate is half the journey, considering it's sourced from a volcanic ash based soil. Dark berry flavors explode in the mouth, while layers of herb and spicy notes build a complex palate. The finish is caressed with nuances of tobacco, coffee and vanilla. Treat your palate to the palatial feel of this valley's velvety, fine-grain tannins as they take hold in the front, ease their way through the mid-palate and melt into the finish, effortlessly. This wine was created to be able to age for the next 15-18 years.

This wine, made from biodynamically-grown grapes, as good as any Sonoma Valley Bordeaux blend has ever been. It's exceptionally ripe and pure with blackberries, cherries, currants and mocha, while oak brings rich notes of toast. It's quite tannic now, so you'll want to cellar it for 5-6 years.

Another Bordeaux blend, the 2010 Tribute Proprietary Red comes from biodynamically farmed vineyards with volcanic soils. Its dark plum/ruby/purple color is followed by an enticing nose of black currants, black cherries, graphite and earth. Supple and round with more charm than the Oonapais, the Tribute is a very good, but hardly inspiring wine to drink over the next 8-10 years.
