Tasting Notes

Tasting Notes

This wine is a deep burgundy, crimson color. On the nose the wine offers inviting aromas of macerated blueberries, raspberry pie, and plum preserves alongside holiday baking spice notes of brown sugar, vanilla, nutmeg and clove. The wine is rich, round and soft, with good weight and body, offering flavors of ripe juicy red berries and raspberry custard alongside allspice and graham cracker crust notes from the oak integration. This well-balanced wine has a bright core of acidity, providing great structure alongside a plush texture with velvety smooth tannins and lingering finish.

Vintage Conditions

The 2019 vintage provided high quality thanks to lower than average yields. The year began with abundant rainfall. Spring weather was mild, resulting in extended flowering in some areas with little shatter. Vines were vigorous thanks to the winter rains. 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. Most late-ripening red grapes continued to hang on the vine and were picked throughout October.
