There is a deep comfort to be found in a year when the climate conforms to a vintner’s expectations and respects the regular rhythm of the seasons.
Long summer days drifted into each other as gentle sunlight gradually drew our fruit toward an equilibrium of ripeness and freshness. Cool nights and recurrent morning mists revitalized the vines through even the warmest stages of the growing cycle, delivering signature mountain-valley vibrancy.
The result is a wine that speaks of a moderate climate in an era of extremes. Profound intensity and structure are held within an ultra-fine tannic framework. Beneath primary layers of wild raspberry lies a deep, dense core of blue fruit, vanilla crème brûlée and freshly cut lavender.
