Growing conditions:
Above average winter rainfall, no frost and normal budbreak produced great fruit set. Judicious thinning and a warm summer led to an outstanding harvest with excellent quality and yields.

After hand harvesting, the grapes were crushed then inoculated 24 hours later with FX-10 yeast and spent an average of 15 days on the skins prior pressing. Different varietal lots were barrel aged separately for 18 months in seasoned French, American, and Hungarian oak barrels then blended and bottled after 4 more months in barrels.

Tasting notes:
Delicious! Complex, inviting aromas are created by multi-varietal blending. Hints of violets, wild strawberries are intertwined with subtle oak. Flavors are extended and rich with layers of round, rich tannins coupled with hints of oak. The finish is rich and lasting which enables additional aging.

While enjoyable currently, this supple red blend will continue to improve with proper cellaring for another 3-6 years in the bottle with a plateau of best drinkability from 2023-2028.

Food selection:
This rich, layered wine will enhance hearty beef dishes, ripe cheeses as well as pastas with spicy sauces.
