Meet the Sheriff. Edward James Sweeney. Tall and stout, he moved swiftly through Livermore Valley chasing down horse thieves, cattle wrestlers, and raiding Livermore's Red Light District. His outstanding bold career and dedication to Livermore earned him his final title as County Detective. The Rhone style blend reflects The Sheriff's best traits; bold, smooth, and memorable (with rich fruit flavors and aromatics).
