Tasting Notes

Brilliant yellow in color, this wine is spicier than the 2014 with flavors of cinnamon, cardamom, saffron and vanilla bean. The fruit is bright and reminiscent of fresh apricot and dried white flower. On the palate this wine has a great weight that carries throughout.  The finish is long and shows even more apricot than the nose.

Notes from Winemaker

This vineyard is a Region 1 cool-climate zone, offering the grapes extended hang time, while maintaining nice acidity.  The fruit was picked early in the morning and was then pressed and put into French oak barrels (25% new) to ferment. After 15 months, the wine was racked and lightly fined and put back in barrel before being bottled unfiltered in March of 2017.
