Ongoing drought led to record low harvests in 2019 across virtually all of our vineyard sites, with some vineyards yielding as little as 30% of our normal tonnage. The growing season was otherwise very balanced and the resulting fruit was exceptionally concentrated and bursting with flavor. Our 2019 blend featured 98% cabernet sourced primarily from the valley floor, with just a dash of Sangiovese.
Dark black and red fruits, leather and cigar box aromas dominate the nose. The dark purple color coats the glass, with an explosion of brambly fruit and hints of herbs and spice upon first tasting the wine. A rich and full bodied mouthfeel leads to a long finish packed with fine grain tannins we feel will integrate beautifully over the next few years.
