Rich with juicy blue and black fruits, this wine offers a savory, long finish and is a magnificently pleasurable wine.
The year began with abundant rainfall. Spring weather was mild, resulting in extended flowering. Three heat events, including one over Labor Day weekend, kicked harvest into high gear, dehydrating some grapes by early September. Cool weather arrived immediately afterward, allowing sugar levels to return to normal. Due to slightly lower yields the quality of the vintage is high. This is the sixth year in a row were quality has been above average.
