Since the winery’s inception in 1991, we have crafted a vineyard designate wine to capture the depth and elegance offered by this esteemed site. The deep ruby color and bright notes of rose tea, spiced cherry, and earth aromas has all the hallmarks of a classic vintage from this vineyard. Fine-grained tannins provide a silky mouthfeel, while flavors of boysenberry, cocoa, and dried herbs add complexity to the refreshing acidity that supports the finish that is clean and long. B

Growing Season

Following five consecutive years of drought, 2017 provided record-setting winter rainfall that filled our
reservoirs, and helped replenish soils and aquifers alike. Spring lead with dry conditions that facilitated
an optimal fruit set before summer commenced with warm-cold day cycles, critical for slow flavor
development and preserving acid. A series of late summer heat waves increased the rate of maturation
which was followed by a prolonged series of cool days in mid-September, completing the ripening
process at a gradual pace. By early October, all our fruit was harvested and displayed balance and
energy at time of picking, maintaining desired levels of acid and sugar.
