Weather in 2011 was very cool overall and we had some intense rain late in the season. The mild summer allowed for incredible acid and tannin maturity in the juice and skins of the grapes. Fruit set was not as large so coupled with the chillier temperatures we dropped a significant amount of fruit to allow the vines the opportunity to fully mature and ripen their crop. It worked out very well and we made a delicious wine for you to enjoy!
Bright and juicy aromas greet you in the glass. In the mouth the wine is just as bright with cherry, cassis, and even a hint of strawberry thanks to the boldness of the fruit along with amazing acidity. Velvety, fine grained tannins are draped about the mouth like a fine silk cloth; long, and satisfying.
