Aromatically the wine is assertive in demonstrating its Carneros heritage with notes of bramble, saddle leather, and fresh strawberry. There is more to come, for the patient taster is rewarded with additional surprises. Resting on the cork since February of 2016 this wine has had ample time to develop, 2 ½ years, so it can be enjoyed with confidence now. Of course, large bottles are rightly famous for their aging potential and this one is no exception.  

Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
Aromatically the wine is assertive in demonstrating its Carneros heritage with notes of bramble, saddle leather, and fresh strawberry. There is more to come, for the patient taster is rewarded with additional surprises. On the palate, one encounters bright raspberry, baked cherry, and notes of clove which resolve into cocoa powder on the long finish.
Vineyard Notes
The 2014 growing season offered an ideal match for this early ripening clone. The cool season allowed a pick date of September 22, when we harvested 1.6 tons. This single block wine was handled in a very straightforward manner, with hand punch-downs of small open top fermenters (T-bins), and a Burgundian yeast, RC-212, did the job of fermentation coaxing out subtle notes and developing mouthfeel. Élevage commenced with only the free run wine going to barrel.
