Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
Aromas of star of anise, lavender and plum. Flavors of raspberry, tobacco leaf and toasted coffee bean
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 with a Southwest aspect.
Production Notes
Grapes were fermented relatively cool, below 80F. Cap was punched down twice daily until the completion of fermentation. Wine was aged in a blend of French and American oak 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.
