Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
Aromas of fig, rhubarb and dark fruit. Flavors of dried plum, leather and tobacco leaf.
Vineyard Notes
Lake county, CA and Rappahannock County, VA: elvation 800', clay and shale.
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 then pressed off. Wine settled in tank then racked to French and American oak barrels, ~40% new barrels.
Winemaker Notes
2015 was a good vintage in Virginia with consistently warm, dry weather throughout the growing season. The fruit came in with good phenolics, and balanced chemistry. Whites were picked about 2 weeks earlier than previous years, but with optimal ripeness. Reds came in with excellent flavors and sound skin integrity.
