Winemaker Notes

Bright aromas of cherries, blackberries, boysenberries and plums intertwine with notes of spice, cedar and crushed gravel. Silky tannins introduce smooth, full flavors of Bing cherries, cassis, dark chocolate and cola. Layers of spiciness and mouthwatering acidity linger throughout the lengthy finish.

The 2009 Vintage
Spring started off wet and cool, delaying bud break. May heated up quickly, but then led to a cycle of temperature fluctuations. Although the weather was variable throughout the summer and kept us guessing, the vines ultimately delivered a crop of smaller berries with very concentrated flavors and smooth tannins. Intense flavors and colors, combined with subtle minerality and bright acidity are the signature of this vintage.
