harvest note

In 2013 the harvest began the second week of September and finished the second week of October. All harvesting is done by hand. A wet winter and spring resulted in good water reserves in the ground for the summer. The summer temperatures were back to "normal" without the periods of excessive heat experienced the previous few vintages. A rainfall the last week of August gave the vines a good boost and prolonged the ripening process. The fine weather continued through September. All this combined gave optimum ripening conditions and a good balance between sugar ripeness, phenolic ripeness and acidity.

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.
