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
2017 was a very high quality vintage with higher than normal yields. The growing season was hot and dry allowing for optimal ripening and acid retention in both red and white cultivars. Fruit was picked 10-14 days earlier than the previous vintage and came in with ideal physiological and chemical ripeness.
