The 2013 Coeur de Vigne ruby red hue shows the youthfulness of this wine, with bright Bing cherry and raspberry dominating the aroma. There are undertones of candied fruit that add to the sweetness that begs for sip of this intriguing wine. Not to disappoint, this wine is refined, and elegant.

The tannins are resolved which coat and add texture but do not over power and brute like so many young wines do.  More traditional in style, this wine is pretty with focused acidity that carries, and should not only age well but will compliment an assortment of culinary dishes.

Vintage Notes

Consistency and uniformity are the two words that best sum up the 2013 vintage.  A warm dry spring brought on early bud break, and allowed for even flowering. The early start permitted for vigorous canopy development and optimal berry set. There were a couple of heat spikes, and a few small events that had minimal effect on ripening and quality.  With that said, the warm sunny weather allowed the grapes to stay on the vines as long as necessary, which allowed optimal development of color and flavors. Overall it was an outstanding growing season.
