The 2010 vintage was a tale of hot and cold. The cool summer allowed for incredible acid and tannin maturity in the juice. September followed with a heat spike that provided some needed ripeness creating some incredibly balanced grapes. The fruit load was extremely low though and we had to thin even more than usual to make sure we could ripen and mature the fruit on each vine.
This vintage of Six Degrees is probably the most elegant vintage we have seen from this vineyard and the wine can best be summed up in one word: Smooth! Our winemaking style has a certain elegance to it already, so coupled with what Mother Nature blessed us with in 2010 our palates will be loving life.
Hopefully we’ll forget we only have 100 cases of this amazing wine. Enjoy!!
