The Story: The Williams family were the first to move to Red Mountain in 1972 and begin planting vines and building the infrastructure that would become the Red Mountain AVA. They are still completely family-owned and operated to this day. Their son Scott Williams has worked with his parents for over 30 years and is currently the head winemaker, while the grandchildren help make wine and run the business as well.
Why You'll Love Me: Rich notes of cassis & blackberry lead to an earthy, savory richness with a bold woody spice to the finish.
