Tasting Notes

This wine has a deep garnet color. The nose has rich fruit and ripe cherry aromas with subtle spice notes. The palate offers flavors of strawberry and plum with hints of clove and vanilla.

Vineyard Notes

A dry, mild winter led to early bud break in mid to late March. Warm temperatures throughout spring and summer kept the vines ahead of their seasonal average maturation. A slight reprieve from the heat arrived around harvest and helped to preserve acidity and allowed for optimal flavor development.
