Tasting Notes

Deep ruby red in color, aromas of Bing cherry, cassis, and bay leaf, with just a hint spice. In the mouth the wine is rich with concentrated bramble berry flavor, and notes of mocha. The wine is well structured with balanced tannins and a delightful finish.

Vineyard Notes

A second consecutive year of drought was the primary concern entering the 2014 growing season in Northern California. A mild winter, with very low rainfall, gave way to an early Spring, resulting in bud break two to three weeks ahead of normal in most growing areas. Heavy rainfall in April saturated the soil profile and refilled reservoirs with water sufficient to irrigate vineyards for the growing season, but not enough to end the drought. Moderate weather conditions prevailed for the late spring and summer, providing ideal conditions for flavor development in the ripening grapes. Due to the early bud break and the ideal growing conditions harvest started 2-3 weeks early and progressed smoothly. Indian Summer weather patterns prevailed through the Fall allowing the grapes to ripen to full maturity prior to being picked and resulting in wines of exceptionally high quality and concentration.
