El Viajero (or “The Traveler”) is sourced from a single Sonoma vineyard that is right on the Napa county line. The grapes are handpicked and 100% destemmed, but none of the berries are crushed. The final product is rich and luxurious, powerfully concentrated with dark fruit, licorice, boysenberry preserves, and ripe fig. It has a silky palate with dusty tannins and notes of blackberry, mission fig, hints of sage and violet, and vanilla. The finish is long and supple, with a pleasing note of coffee liqueur.
