Quick Overview

A beautifully rich, almost opaque purple color with flavors and aromas of sun-dried cherry, cassis, black olive, and cacao followed by dried herb or tea and a touch of vanilla. The wine is youthfully grippy, yet will benefit from a little time... or a trip to the decanter and a nice dry-aged ribeye.

Details

When the grapes are well suited to their growing region, they become an expression of time and place. Winemaking becomes more about intuition, the timing of the pick and the patience to let the wine be what it wants to be. There are no bad vintages in California, just vintages of character... this vintage has lots of character. The flowering season was met with rain that reduced the size of the set by 40%. The small set could have been an issue, but nature sometimes has a way of balancing itself. The rest of the season was long and cool allowing the small clusters hang time while conserving natural acidity. If there had been a large set, the cool season might have caused difficulty ripening the grapes. Whereas the small yields coupled with a long, cool growing season punctuated by a late season heat wave, created optimally-ripened, intensely-flavored fruit with a vibrant mouth feel.
