On the nose this wine bursts with aromoas of blueberry mixed with ripe fig and smoke. Delightful background aromas of truffle and forest floor mix with graphite and herbs de Provence. The palate is at first forward with sweet tobacco, rolling into ripe plum and a round mid-palate, finishing with a touch of smoky char and caramel. Winery Exclusive
Harvest & Winemaking
Harvest 2014 started off a little dry. We were then blessed with some perfectly timed spring rain which helped develop nice vineyard canopies. We had an early bloom and an even earlier ripening than 2013. Not only that, we had one of the largest earthquakes in decades rock the valley on the eve of harvest. Undeterred, but with many vintner’s picking up the pieces of broken barrels and spilled wine, harvest 2014 charged on with perfect, mild weather through the end of the growing season. This led to high quality grapes and even higher quality wine we can’t wait to share.
