Vintage Notes

The 2013 harvest began on a high note in September, with some harvesting as early as the first week, but most of the harvest was well under way by the middle of the month. The warmth of the long, dry summer raised expectations of warm weather vintages in 2003 and 2006. All of that came to a screeched halt in the final week of September when the still powerful remnants of a typhoon that hit Japan a few days earlier barreled ashore.

Despite all the Hoopla about the challenges of this vintage the wines are tasting on point. Delicate fruit flavors, flora aromatics and well integrated acids and tannins.

Tasting Notes

Brian O'Donnell owner/winemaker of Belle Pente Winery crafted a wine for the 2013 vintage with aromatics of violets, baking spice, cherry and raspberry. Floral notes continue on a round, full layered palate of red cherry, cola and hints of cedar spice. The finish is lingering and rewardingly smooth.
