Winemaker Notes
Lush blackberry, black plum and powdered dark chocolate dominate the aromatic profile of our 2015 Tannat. The palate is rich and round with silky tannins and elegant acidity, which help to balance the ripe fruit qualities, which are characteristic of the 2015 vintage. Drinking well now, but could be set aside for up to 5-7 years to round out those still young tannins even more.

Production Notes
Planted in the early 2000’s, our Tannat makes up just 0.85 acres of our estate vineyards. This site is well suited for Tannat, with many high-degree days to give this big varietal time to ripen. In fact, it is the largest yielding block on our Estate. After harvest the fruit was fermented in stainless steel tanks and then racked to French oak barrels (40% new), for 22 months prior to bottling in December 2017.
Vineyard Notes
2015 was another warm year with one of our earliest harvests to date. Yields were lower than the past few growing seasons, but the quality of fruit was exceptional with concentrated flavors and balanced acidity due to consistently warm temperatures throughout the season. All of our grapes were harvested between September 28 – October 28, 2015 at optimal ripeness.
