Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
Aromas of dark bramble fruit, balsam and baking spice. Flavors of dark ripe cherry, anise and stone fruit.
Vineyard Notes
Soils are based on weathered green stone, shale, and montmorillonite clay. Green stone is high in nutrients and when broken down creates rich, fertile soils. The shale allows for good water drainage, while the clay provides organic matter. Sites are all south/south west aspect ranging from 800' - 1200' elevation.
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 oak barrels, ~25% new oak. The wine was aged for 15 months.
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.
