An ideal season—no frosts, a mild spring and summer and a tranquil fall.

No growing season is easy, but 2012 presented few challenges. A mild spring led to a good fruit set. Summer and fall brought warm temperatures, but no heat waves and no early or late rains. All the fruit enjoyed a long, slow ripening.

Tasting Notes

It has a pretty ruby color with a garnet edge and a complex nose of cedar, cassis, black cherry and dark chocolate. On the palate, it is extremely elegant, rich and mouth-coating and has a long finish of concentrated fruit and spice. This wine is remarkable in how it continues to evolve in the glass over the course of a meal. It has great maturity of aromas and tannins at moderate alcohol. With proper cellaring, this wine should give drinking pleasure through 2025.
