Vineyard

Properties: Antinori Vineyard, Wurtele Vineyard
Appellation: Atlas Peak
Clonal Selections: Sangiovese Grosso, Clone 7 cabernet sauvignon

 

Growing Season

Summary: The 2015 vintage began in late winter due to unseasonably warm temperatures leading to an early bud break, and thus an elongated growing season. Overall yields were lighter than average with smaller cluster and berry size as a result of cooler temperatures during bloom and the third consecutive year of drought. The resultant wines show increased concentration of flavors with wonderful balance and round textures.
Harvest Date: September 23rd
450 cases produced
