Alder Springs is located in the cool Mendocino Valley above Sonoma in Northern California. The vineyard is a series of rolling hills and steep inclines at high altitude touching the eastern edge of the Coastal Range.

The wine making process includes hand grape picking with a 22 days maceration in a open tank fermenter including 3 days of cold soak and 19 days of Alcoholic fermentation. Three pump overs are perform during 10 days followed by 3 punch downs per day for another 12 days during the maceration to gain a perfect extraction of all aromatics compounds. After the wine is transferred into a combination of new and old French oak barrels to have a full malolactic fermentation in an aging of 26 months to create a beautiful and opulent structure.

The nose has a powerful aroma of blackberry and black cherry, evolving to delicate nuances of chocolate, violet and forest floor. This a full body wine with smooth and persisting tannins. The palate carries a punch of dark fruit flavor balanced by a fresh finish.
