Deep purple color and rich hue. The nose is succulent and shows layers of fruit flavors. Blueberry, rich strawberry and red currant notes are apparent. Soft notes of vanilla and violet and toast provide aromatic richness. The texture is supple and juicy to show off the 2017 vintage. The pallet is lush with long core texture. Pure viscosity. Aging – you may want to leave a bottle for your grandchildren!

Winemaking: All of our fruit is hand sorted and fully destemmed to small
stainless-steel tanks with no crushing. Cold soaks (5-7 days), warm
fermentations (85-90° F), and moderate pumpovers (twice a day or less)
were done this year in order to express the 2016 vintage. Total skin
contact ranged from 19-34 days with all fermentations being carefully
basket pressed and put to barrel on full fermentation lees for ML. Wine
was fortified at 9% RS. Racking was twice per year with only one
assemblage being done to allow the blend to “marry” in barrel. Native
yeast and ML used with only small lots conducted using cultured
Bordeaux isolates.

Blend: 35% Cabernet Sauvignon, 35% Zinfandel, 30% Syrah.

Cooperage and Aging: 75% new barrel; 100% French oak. Total time in
barrel: 23 months
