Tasting Notes: Dark brooding aromas of candied boysenberry, purple plum, and blackberry jam with layers of toasted marshmallow, dark cocoa and allspice.  On the palate the wine is rich and soft leading with the dark fruit with smooth tannins and medium body.  The juicy black and blue fruit lingers on the finish with great balance and brightness despite the dark and rich structure.

Growing Season: 2019 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.
