This estate grown red has captivating aromas of dried plums, dark chocolate, and vanilla spice. It has a big mouthfeel that balances ripe red fruit, round tannins, and all-spice. All these layers lead to full bodied, elegant, and complex wine.
Estate Vineyard to the west of our tasting room and production facility. Bilateral cordon trained into, T-trellis "California sprawl." Clone 3 on 039-16 rootstock. Planted in 2012, the vines are young and full of energy. Pruning and shoot thinning were done to keep cluster counts in balance, leaves were pulled on the north side of the vine as the rows oriented east to west. 2016 was the first vintage we harvested fruit from this vineyard.
