Growing Season:

The year began with abundant rainfall. Spring weather was mild,resulting in extended flowering in some areas with little shatter. Vines were vigorous thanks to the winter rains. A freak hail storm passed through quickly in June causing isolated damage. Three heat events, including one over Labor Day weekend, kicked harvest into high gear, dehydrating some grapes by early September. Cool weather arrived immediately afterward, allowing sugar levels to return to normal. Most late-ripening red grapes continued to hang on the vine and were picked over the next few weeks.

Harvest Date: September 28th to October 12th

Harvest Brix: 26.4

Tasting Notes:

Dark purple plum, cassis, black currant, with cocoa powder, cedar, and star anise aromas layered with vanilla and clove. Rich and forward fruit on the palate, the smooth cocoa textured tannins carry the wine through the long finish.
