One of my favorite vintages of my career, 2013! Mother nature surprised us with a natural balance of ripeness (sugar) and maturity (acid, color, flavor). It was a special year!
A blend of all the red varietals we produce and for the first time, our Pinot Noir made the blend, (thank you Crystal Waugh). Zinfandel, Syrah, Petite Sirah, Cabernet Sauvignon (Napa and Sonoma), Merlot, Petite Verdot, Pinot Noir, Cabernet Franc and Barbera.
Dark garnet red with purple hue. Intense aromas of ripe blackberries, plums and allspice. The palate expresses deep tones of dark chocolate and espresso with hints of vanilla and lovely hints of black tea on a soft smooth finish.
