Vintage Notes

For the 2017 vintage, the spring warmed up with record heat in late May that initiated flowering. However, a cool down in early June slowed flowering through the second and third week of the month then was followed by a few days of record high temperatures. As a result, flowering was very complete and produced a very good fruit set. A warm early September accelerated fruit development but was slowed by a cool down mid-month. Feeling that the harvest was going to be fast and furious, growers breathed a sigh of relief with the cooler conditions and proceeded to have a slow and steady harvest.The 2017 vintage ended up with near average to slightly higher than average sugar and acid levels with many touting beautiful flavors and well balanced fruit. 

Tasting Notes

Textured & layered, a partnership with nature, earthiness and minnerlaity will showcase the aromatics of the nose, a contrasting palate of ripe dark cherry and raspberry flows from front the bask, side to side on the palate.
