2012 Checkerboard Aurora Vineyard
Since the inaugural 2006 vintage, Checkerboard was crafted from the Aurora Vineyard. Beginning with the 2012 vintage, the wine was renamed to reflect its vineyard source and the wine program expanded to include bottlings from the Coyote Ridge and Nash Creek Vineyards.
The 2012 Checkerboard Aurora Vineyard will entice you with a sweet sandalwood nose, mouth-coating fruit—blueberry and rhubarb compote—and has a tremendously long finish with notes of dark cherry, graphite and mahogany.
