Tasting Notes

This wine has a brilliant silver straw hue with intense aromas of juicy gala apple, sweet orange blossom and Meyer lemon zest with hints of vanilla and caramelized sugar and well-integrated oak spice. Bright vibrant flavors of sweet lemon and pear over a core of minerality are layered with hints of toasty warm brown spice and nuances of creamy custard. The wine is full-bodied with a rich, silky texture and a long finish. The balanced acidity and structure of this wine will allow it to develop additional complexity with bottle age.

Vineyard Notes

The 2015 growing season started with an earlier-than-normal bud break across California. Most of the rainfall occurred at the beginning of the rainy season and was followed by a series of late-season storms. These storms recharged the field capacity and reservoirs providing ample water for most of the growing season. Short but intense hot spells followed by cooling periods during early ripening propelled sugars close to optimum levels. The early bud break and resulting longer growing season allowed the grapes plenty of time to achieve color and flavor of the highest quality.

Winemaker Notes

After a gentle whole cluster press, 100% of the wine was barrel fermented in French oak. Malolactic fermentation was introduced to 100% of the wine to soften the acidity and impart a smooth mouthfeel. The wine was then stirred by hand every two weeks while it aged in the barrels sur lie for nine months before bottling.
