Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
Aromatics of cherry, strawberries, and hints of rose petal. This medium-bodied wine adorns a dark ruby color, medium to light tannins embrace the palate, while flavors of strawberries, cherries and spicy notes accompany a silky finish.
Vineyard Notes
Abundant winter rainfall provided full soil profiles to start the growing season. A uniform and short bloom period coupled with cool growing temperatures through the early part of the season ensured even development with little variation throughout the vineyard blocks. Early summer temperatures were cooler than normal, while the end of summer brought temperatures that were consistently warmer. All these factors culminated in full phenolic ripening, resulting in wines that have beautiful, deep color, balanced tannic structure, and a round mouthfeel with soft acidity.
