Vintage Notes

Santa Maria Valley experienced a prolonged growing season due to cooler weather. The combination of variable weather and strong winds in the spring delayed development and influenced bloom and set, creating differing yields in the vineyards. The lower yields and cooler growing season produced grapes with pronounced acidity and excellent concentration that were harvested on September 9th.

Winemaking

After destemming and a three-day cold soak, fermentation took place in open-top stainless steel tanks at a range of warm and cool temperatures. Aged for 11 months in 100% French oak with 35% new barrels. 

Wine Profile

Nose: Aromas of dark cherry and pomegranate are accented by notes of cherry blossoms, white mushrooms, forest floor, and dark earth.

Palate: Medium-bodied with flavors of strawberry, blueberry, and cherry, mixed with tangerine, cinnamon, and cola that culminate in a long, flavorful finish.
