Vintage Notes

2018 was a wonderful growing season. Late spring rains made sure there was plenty of ground water to start the growing season. The summer was cooler than usual, with only a few days near 100 degrees. While the yields were larger than expected due mostly to larger berry size, the harvest was smooth and easy, allowing us to pick the fruit at its prime. 2018 was a lovely year with color, depth and complexity.

Winemaker Notes

The grapes were hand harvested at night, carefully sorted in the vineyard, then brought to the cellar and destemmed. Following a cold soak, fermentation occurred at a high temperature to ensure maximum extraction was achieved before the wine was racked to 50 percent new French oak barrels. The wine was aged in barrel for a total of 18 months before bottling.
