Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
Aromas of currant , lavender and plum. Flavors of sweet cherry, blueberry and all spice.
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
This is our first sparkling red wine. It is made primarily from Cabernet Franc, in the charmat method. The base wine was made in the same style as out other red wines. After several months of aging the wine was refermented In a pressurized tank forcing the CO2 generated from the fermentation to absorb into the wine .
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.
