Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
Bright aromas of raspberry preserves, Bing cherry, balsam and sage emanate from the glass. A dusty tannin entry gives way to flavors of pomegranate, wet slate and bay leaf. This wine is quite energetic and lively on the palate which may be a reflection of the vines age.
Vineyard Notes
Littleway vineyard is one of our 3 estate vineyards. Its elevation is 800' and the soils are comprised of red clay, shale and green stone. The vines were planted in 2014, making it still a relatively young vineyard.
Production Notes
The fruit was destemmed without crushing and fermented stainless-steel with temperatures not rising above 88F. 1-2 pump-overs a day were employed for gentle color and tannin extraction.
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.
