Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
Aromas of lavender, cherry and balsam. Flavors of all spice, savory meat and plum.
Vineyard Notes
One vineyard sits between 900' and 1200' elevation. Southeast aspect, with 10% grade. Rocky soil comprised of shale, limestone and clay. The other vineyard is 800' elevation, with shale, green stone and clay soils.
Production Notes
Fruit was destemmed with no crushing and pumped into tank and bins. 2-4 punchdowns or pumpovers a day. Allowed to age on skins for 7-12 days post fermentation, then pressed off. Wine settled in tank then racked to French and American oak barrels, ~20% new barrels.
Winemaker Notes
2016 was quite wet in early spring making conditions challenging in the vineyard. July and August dried out and we saw good ripening and flavor development in both reds and whites. Merlot, Cab Franc and Chardonnay stood out.
