Winemaker Notes
Each year we taste through every barrel in our cellar and rate them by color, aromatics, flavors, varietal and site accuracy, balance, intensity and complexity. The highest rated wines become candidates for Svelte, our flagship red blend. This seamless 2015 boasts blueberry, cherry cola and black fruit with mouthwatering richness throughout the palate. An ideal pairing for seared filet topped with caramelized onions. Cellar for a few years to allow this wine to reach its full potential.

Production Notes
2015 was hot! This resulted in all aspects of the growing season being 2-3 weeks ahead of schedule: bud break, bloom and harvest. Grapes had smaller berry size producing ripe, full bodied wines with great structure. We started picking mid-August and finished by the end of September, for the first time ever. Certainly an exciting vintage with great fruit quality.
