harvest note

2012 started with an unusually cold and dry winter. With the arrival of spring, the dry soil warmed up quickly and bud burst took place relatively early. There was a bit of rainfall in May which helped the vines get through the dry summer. The summer temperatures were moderate with no extremes until the end of August when the temperature went above 95°F for a short few days. Some light rains in early September were a welcomed boost for the vines and helped them bring the grapes to phenolic ripeness.

tasting note

An intense and complex nose of black fruit followed by toasty spicy notes. The palate is elegant and balance with fine rounded tannins.

food pairing

Pair with braised or roasted meats and hard cheeses.
