A symphony of dark fruits such as cherries, plum, and black raspberries is met with pomegranate, cranberries, violets, and dried sage. Hints of sweet tobacco, cocoa, and minerality are entwined with fruit and spice.

Production Notes

February saw abundant rains, followed by lots of filtered light in spring and early summer. Both bud break and flowering occurred a bit late, but under ideal weather conditions, creating a plentiful and even fruit set. Summer brought generous sun during the day and cooler marine influences, virtually uninterrupted by major heat spikes. The relatively mild summer was followed by extended fall sunshine and moderate heat, which created near-ideal conditions for winemakers to allow their fruit to accumulate flavor complexity with gradual increases in sugar levels.
