Tasting notes

Yonder is bursting with aromas of violets, dark chocolate, baking spices, toasty oak and vanilla that lead to delicious and nicely tuned flavors of blackberry, black cherries, red currant, and on to a long silken finish. Lovely now, and for the long march of years to come.

Food Pairing: Roasted chanterelle goat cheese tarte tatin.

Movie Pairing: Easy Rider

FOUNDERS’ NOTES:
In the middle of the 2012 harvest our GM Bryan Keay told us we needed to make a cab franc because everybody wanted us to. It was frankly, the farthest thing from our intentions. Way way over Yonder. So, the responsive, customer centered company that we are, we talked to lots of our supporters and asked them what wine they wanted that we didn't already make. We had 18 at that point. They all said "Cab Franc!" So we made 125 cases and it sold out in three hours. Good call brother.
