Paloma Vineyard sits above the fog at the very peak of Spring Mountain.

This unique combination results in varying microclimates and terroir throughout the vineyard.  Three generation of the Richards family have now been involved in our family run vineyard and winery that was started 39 years ago by Jim & Barbara Richards.

Tasting Notes:
Cassis, licorice and dark chocolate on the nose. As expected, the wine is rich, sleek and supple, with loads of wild berry fruit, oak spice, coffee and chocolate notes. Nice depth and a pliant texture to the blue and black fruit flavors.
