Vintage Notes

A warm summer led to an early start to harvest, followed by a stretch of lower than average temperatures in late September that slowed ripening so grapes hung longer without sugars skyrocketing, providing balance, more flavor development and concentration. A long but successful harvest!

Winemaker Notes

Crushed gently and dropped by gravity into a 2 ton round tank, cold soaked 36 hours, then inoculated with RP 15 yeast, hand- punched and pressed directly to barrel, where the wine finishes both primary and secondary fermentation.

Composition

Leads with bright fruit on the nose with hints of baking spices and savory white pepper. Luscious, tart red fruit including cherries and cranberries as well as raspberry vinaigrette notes show on the palate, with a touch of vanilla bean and semi- sweet chocolate, finishing with soft tannins.
