Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
Aromas of anise, blueberry, and plum. Flavors of graham cracker, cherry and coriander.
Vineyard Notes
Heavy shale and limestone slopes with south/southeast aspect between 1000'-1200' elevation. Dry farmed using sustainable practices.
Production Notes
Individual small lot fermentations in bin and tank. Some lots allowed to age on skins after primary fermentation for up to 3 weeks. Aged in French oak for 18 months.
Winemaker Notes
2014 was a good growing season in Virginia with consistently warm, dry weather throughout the season. The fruit came in with good phenolics and balanced chemistry. Red fruit came in with small berries, due to the lack water, resulting in rich, tannic wines.
