The Wine

2017 was an excellent growing year overall. Generous winter rains were followed by an early bud break. Mild weather continued throughout summer and the beginning of harvest. Some heat spikes arrived in late September, but harvest ended with cool temperatures and rain beginning in mid-October. This red blend is full of dark fruit aromas with baking spice, vanilla, and mocha. The mouthfeel is full and rich on the entry. The soft, fine tannins and balanced acidity lead to a full, lengthy finish.

Cabernet Sauvignon – Provides structure, density, black cherry
Petite Sirah – Richness, mid palate, concentration
Syrah – Violet, spice, earthiness, depth
Merlot – Blackberry cobbler, juiciness, acidity
Malbec – Earthiness, hint of tobacco, great acidity, texture
