“This red begins with aromas of a black-cherry sundae, complete with caramel, whipped cream and nuts, as well as a bit of coffee. There’s just enough bite to the tannins on the sip to uphold those lush qualities.” - M.K
A mild and uneventful growing season, coupled with cool growing temperatures and overnight fog, ensured even development with little variation throughout vineyard blocks. Early October brought small amounts of rain and had no effect on quality or harvest progress. The result at harvest time was optimum phenolic ripening, producing wines with naturally balanced acidity.
