This wine's name, Alluvium, comes from the alluvial soils found in Knights Valley. Alluvial soil is formed with the help of rivers or streams carrying various sediment. The soil will be fine grained and consist of silt, clay and sand. This variety of soil helps contribute to quality grapes.
The nose was sweet with cherry, chocolate and sage. The palate brought dominant cherry, with cocoa, subtle sweet tea, herb, lemon and oak. The sips finished with cherry, tea and oak. This was a delicious combination of flavors that were well structured, with a very smooth overall feel.
