Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
Aromas of blackberry, sage and bacon. Flavors of dark cherry, vanilla and balsam.
Vineyard Notes
Vineyard sits between 900' and 1200' elevation. Southeast aspect, with 10% grade. Rocky soil comprised of shale, limestone and clay.
Production Notes
The different lots were destemmed into tank or bin. Punchdowns or pumpovers were carried out twice daily until fermentation was complete. Some of the lots were aged on the skins for up to 2 weeks. Aged in French oak for 11 months.
Winemaker Notes
2015 was a good vintage in Virginia with consistently warm, dry weather throughout the growing season. The fruit came in with good phenolics, and balanced chemistry. Whites were picked about 2 weeks earlier than previous years, but with optimal ripeness. Reds came in with excellent flavors and sound skin integrity.
