Tasting notes

This well-known heartbreak grape has found a charming home in our Estate Vineyards. Block-by- block we have done the detailed work to discover the optimum sites to harvest for the finest quality. Tantalizing aromatics of blackberry, and Lapin cherries draw you in with hints of dusty soil and cinnamon. In a word – sublime.

Viticultural notes

The weather in 2015 was near perfect for grape growing. It began with an early, mild spring, with budburst two weeks early. The mild weather continued and the months of May and June resulted in excellent fruit set. By the beginning of harvest, the season had broken average heat records. In September, temperatures cooled to near normal, and the rain stayed away providing a long and plentifully harvest which continued into the first couple of weeks of October. Overall, the extended harvest period allowed for uniform ripening and a very nice end to the season.
