Beautiful aromas of ripe red plum, anise seed, cigar box and black licorice lead to flavors of ripe red cherry, clove, and vanilla. The structure is solid and full-bodied with less mid-palate grip than other vintages and instead fills the mouth with a well-balanced juiciness.

Tasting Notes
Beautiful aromas of ripe red plum, anise seed, cigar box and black licorice lead to flavors of ripe red cherry, clove, and vanilla. The structure is solid and full-bodied with less mid-palate grip than other vintages and instead fills the mouth with a well-balanced juiciness.
Vineyard Notes
Coming into the third year of drought, the 2015 harvest also had colder weather during flowering which led to a poor fruit set, and small, uneven grape clusters. Yields were down significantly, but quality was excellent. Summer warmth, with no rain, had picking begin in early August and end before October. Most affected were our Pinot Noir yields, but we are pleased with the full range of flavors that a concentrated vintage can provide.
Production Notes
All of our fruit passes through a small de-stemmer and is never crushed. We then bleed a percentage of the juice to allow for an increased ratio of skin to juice which adds structure, mouthfeel and color to the final wine. Our pump over fermentations are less aggressive to allow for a more gentle and supple final wine. Once fermentation is complete the wine is racked clean into oak barrels where it passes through a native inoculation of malolactic fermentation and then ages for 17 - 19 months prior to bottling.
