Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
Black currant, light vanilla and citrus blossom emerge with notes of red pepper and spice.
Vineyard Notes
100% from Hook Vineyard. The gently sloping hills allow for excellent drainage. Soils are predominantly Chualar loam. Hook experiences morning fog and windy afternoons during most of the growing season.
Winemaker Notes
A perfect spring and early bud break/veraison coupled with the typical daytime temperatures and accompanying winds has led to another incredible harvest for Monterey and the Santa Lucia Highlands. The warmer than normal temperatures of the Pacific Ocean/Monterey Bay led to warmer night time temps causing slightly lower than normal acids and earlier ripening.
Food Pairing Notes
Pairs well with bourbon and peach pork sliders, sweet potato fries, or a juicy lamb burger.
Production
Aged for 14 months in 50% in new and old French oak barrels.
