Dark red in color with notes of chocolate-covered cherries and crème soda. Aromas of pepper and nutmeg fill the nose, followed by notes dark berries and toasted almonds. The gentle tannin on the palate creates a silky mouthfeel and emphasizes the lush fruit core.  Winery Exclusive.

Description


 HARVEST & WINEMAKING

The 2013 harvest was unbelievable in many ways. Coming after the amazing 2012 vintage, 2013 was incredibly even more amazing. The near floods at the end of 2012 set us up nicely to weather the very dry season of 2013. Hardly a spec of rain fell for the entire season. The growth season started earlier, giving us plenty of time to ripen another solid crop. Harvest was a dream. The first vintage in a long time where the moderate temperature meant winemakers were truly able to take their time—no rain nor heat spikes to get in the way of bringing in nearly perfect grapes.
