Tasting Notes

This wine has a ruby center with violet edges. The nose has rich blueberry and earthy aromas with subtle anise and toffee notes. The palate offers flavors of blackberry and plum with hints of cinnamon and tabacco leaf.

Vineyard Notes

After a cold winter, early spring was wet through the month of March. Rapidly warming temperatures in April led to buds breaking almost a week early. Favorable conditions continued, leading to a very strong fruit set after bloom in mid-June. Abundance of fruit allowed for meticulous thinning and quality fruit selection.
