The Vintage

Our coolest growing season since 1978 with one heat spell in late August when temperatures soared over 111° F! Fortunately, late summer brought warm days resulting in a beautiful harvest.

The Wine

Ripe cherry and raspberry aromas, accented by mint, spice and sweet tobacco. Raspberry and plum flavors, wrapped in toasty oak, lend complexity to the palate and give way to a lively finish.

Food Affinities

Delightful with grilled seafood, pork and barbecued steaks.
