TASTING NOTES

Initial fruit aromas of Marionberry bramble, cherries, plum, strawberry and guava deepen to reveal notes of brambly earth, cedar, baking spices, brown sugar, pepper, paraffin, dark tobacco and wet slate. On the palate, the wine is juicy and rich with fine grained tannins as the fruit becomes even more intense on the tongue, filling the mid-palate. The body of the wine is full, but lithe and focused with a racy, energetic core of modest acidity. It is both bright and bold, complex and complete. The long, lingering finish is interlaced with fine dusty tannins.


Vintage Notes

A cool, wet spring led to the latest budbreak we’ve seen for the past several years, and hence later flowering. This means a greater chance of favorable weather and the development of a large crop both in terms of berry quantity and size. This calls for discipline in fruit-thinning. The summer was warm and sunny, accumulating growing degree days and ‘catching up’ the projected harvest to about two weeks behind 2015 and 2016. Underlying the challenges of the 2017 vintage, was a very sound growing season and harvest.
