Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
Aromas of red berry, stone fruit and damp forest. Flavors of cherry, plum and all spice.
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 and American oak barrels, ~20% new barrels.
Winemaker Notes
2018 was a fairly wet year, with well above average precipitation. This created issues with fruit set, yields and quality. It took a lot of diligence in the vineyard and cellar to pull off a successful vintage. It helped that we had vineyards spread out all over the place. This allowed us to be very selective with which fruit would end up in which program.
