Growing Season

A long warm summer and mild finish to the season

The beginning of the 2019 growing season was defined by copious rainfall and late soil moisture.The long, warm summer saw very few extreme heat events, with foggy mornings setting the stage for vibrant and expressive wines. The long, relatively mild finish to the season, not without its moments of unpredictability, helped to preserve freshness and finesse in the fruit with abundant hang time teasing out great color, structure and soft tannins. Volume is looking to be about average to a little less than average. All in all, exceptional fruit with bright acidity and ample texture promises an amazing vintage.

Tasting Notes

Vibrant aromas of black currant, mulberry, and crème de cassis mingled with cedar, clove, earth and sage. Juicy, soft and lush black fruits carry into the bright and savory mid palate. Ripe flavors of black cherry linger on the classy, elegant finish.
