harvest note

The 2016 harvest was a winemakers dream in terms of quality. Quantity however was down from the previous season due to a rough growing season. The season saw cooler then average temperatures that led to a slight reduction in yields. This was followed by a very warm and dry summer - with only one rainfall in August to help the vines. Harvesting began in the beginning of October and the resulting wines have wonderful flavors with exceptional profiles.

tasting note

Generous flavors of cherry and fresh red fruits. Soft tannins and a long finish.

food pairing

Pairs well with various meats, poultry and cheeses.
