Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
Aromas of green melon, hibiscus, and blood orange. Flavors of tangerine, vanilla, and toasted marshmallow.
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 is a similar elevation but is comprised of green stone and quartz and is a Southwest aspect.
Production Notes
This is a blend of mostly Cab Franc. Grapes were picked on two separate days in late September and early October. One lot was whole clustered pressed. The other lot was destemmed for red winemaking then bled 20%. Both juice lots were settled over night then racked to neutral French oak for fermentation. Aged 3 months in barrel, then blended and bottled.
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.
