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

Intense ruby red color. Clean at the nose, characterized by ripe, fruity notes, enriched by hints of spices. On the palate it is smooth, full and warm, with present but integrated tannins. Good persistence.

food pairing

Pairs well with red meat, pasta with meat sauce, & cheese.
