Deep garnet color. Scented blueberry and currant fruits, fennel, and clay earth. Ripe stone fruits entry, round tannins, sweet toasted oak; long moderately chalky-tannic finish. EB (10/16)
Abundant sunshine provided ideal growing conditions, and a smaller-than-average crop allowed the fruit to develop intense flavor and color. Harvested in early October, the grapes were destemmed, but not crushed; all four parcels (two of each varietal) fermented separately. The wine aged for two years in American oak, and was racked quarterly for clarity. It will be most enjoyable over the next seven to nine years. (9/14)
