Deep red in color with aromas of dark plum and black pepper. The palate is full of jammy fruit flavors supported by a nice backbone of vanilla and clove. This wine can be enjoyed now, but will age nicely for about three to five years.

Production Notes
After harvest, the fruit was cold soaked to enhance the color and flavor while avoiding harsh tannins. The individual lots were racked once and put into a combination of American and French oak barrels (75% new), with the balance to neutral barrels. The wine was bottled in June of 2019.
Vineyard Notes
The 2017 growing season started off with record setting rainfalls, delaying bud break from years past. Spring and summer experienced a mixture of foggy, warm and windy conditions. The summer months were moderately warm allowing the grapes to mature at an ideal pace. Extreme heat spikes at the end of August to early September pushed harvest ahead of schedule. The fruit for this wine was picked on September 7, 2017.
