Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
Bing cherries and ripe raspberries, continuing with cardamom and clove, and finishing with a subtle hint of smoked meats.
Vineyard Notes
Shoot thinning is performed early in the year; after fruit set, leaves are removed in the fruit zone on the east side of the vines. Later, the clusters are counted and thinned to a maximum of 28 clusters per vine. Once the grapes have achieved 75% color, a final cluster thinning is performed to remove any green or second crop clusters. The average yield is 2 tons per acre.
Winemaker Notes
The 2016 Vintage was an early harvest, with consistent warmth throughout the season. This allowed for these two vineyard sites (both at or above 700' above sea level) to fully ripen.
