TASTING NOTES
Deep ruby red in color with scarlet highlights, Clark & Telephone opens with bountiful
aromas of red fruits of cranberry and raspberry jam, laced with clove, cedar, and holiday
baking spices. Bold and complex flavors of crushed ripe cherry, cranberry] and blueberry pie
linger on the palate. The texture is rich and lively, and leads into a warm and structured finish.

THE VINEYARD
The Clark & Telephone Vineyard was established in 1972 and planted with ‘own root’
Martini clone vines. Located just 13 miles from the ocean and situated on a west-facing
slope, this vineyard experiences weather patterns that pull from west to east to bring cool
fog and coastal breezes inland until August when Santa Ana winds begin. This climate makes
for later-ripening and longer-hanging grapes with a delightful fruitiness, great acidity and
underlying flavor nuances that contribute additional complexity. Due to intensive pruning
and crop-thinning, the vines produce loose clusters with small, intensely flavored berries.
The result is dense, dark-berry fruit and abundant, sweet, baking-spice characteristics that
are synonymous with the Martini clone.

92 Points Wine Spectator
“Rich, ripe and powerful, with notes of chocolate tart and Asian spice to the dark plum and cherry flavors. Forest floor and plenty of toasty accents linger on the finish, with blackberry jam hints. Drink now through 2025. 8,375 cases made.”
