The 2017 vintage began with massive flooding in the North Coast after a years-long drought. Spring was dry with high temperatures and continuous heat spikes through early summer, which accelerated ripening. This combination of environmental factors led to wines with pure and layered flavors with excellent characteristics.
Deep ruby color and rich hue. The nose is complex and shows layers of dark fruit flavors and spice tones. Blueberry, rich plum and red raspberry notes are apparent. Soft notes of vanilla and toast provide aromatic richness. The texture is supple with depth on the pallet. The tannins are lush with long finish texture. This wine is drinkable now, but will continue to improve for 5 to 7 years. Enjoy with your friends and favorite food. Alcohol 14.20%
