The Vintage

With a warm spring, the vines got off to an early start. The weather turned cool during bloom which impacted fruit set and resulted in fewer grapes per cluster. The size of the crop was further reduced as the dry soils, from a lack of late rains, led to smaller grapes. The weather was warm throughout the summer leading right into one of our earliest harvests ever. The resulting wines are fantastic as the smaller grapes and fine weather contributed to ideal ripeness with very concentrated flavors.

The Wine

The nose features expressive aromas of ripe purple plum, blackberry and bay laurel. The palate is rich with notes of chocolate and black cherry and the ample tannins provide weight.

Food Affinities

Lamb, beef or the meatier fishes such as tuna or salmon, simply prepared and sauced, create a special pairing with this wine. Thyme, peppercorns and caramelized onions are wonderful complementary flavors.
