Red ruby in the glass, this wine opens with aromas of red cherry, blackberry and hints of earthiness and toasty oak. The palate is rich, with refined tannins, balanced acidity, and flavors of red fruit, cherry, raspberry and notes of vanilla and plum on a long complex finish.

90pts Wine Spectator, September 2021
“Concentrated dark fruit and berry flavors are backed by medium-grained tannins and fresh acidity, with loamy and minerally accents on the ripe finish.” —K.M.

90pts Wine Enthusiast, November 2021
“Mesquite-smoked cherry and light cola aromas on the nose cruise into a spicy palate of root beer and cinnamon that surrounds a cherry compote core.” —M.K

Close to average winter rainfall provided an excellent soil moisture profile for the start of the growing season. Budbreak started the last week of February, mostly in younger blocks, with the rest popping out mid-March. Canopies were at arm’s length by the end of April with no signs of cap fall until the middle of May. Veraison started slightly later than normal, towards the end of July, which led to a later start of harvest. The weekend of 9/14, we had a heat spike, but after three days the weather returned to normal. The harvest started fast but overall had a beautiful, even pace with cool nights and moderate daytime temperatures throughout the end of the season. The quality of the fruit was outstanding, resulting in a wine with beautiful color, concentrated flavors, balanced tannins, round mouthfeel and soft acidity.
