Vineyard Notes
2015 Vintage: A warm winter yield- ed bud break three weeks earlier than normal and lead into bloom under exceptional weather conditions. A dry and hot summer was broken up by rain in late August, and favorably cooled down in September in time to result in one of the earliest harvests on record. The grapes at harvest were extraordinary in quantity and quality, offering ripeness, balance, and expressive flavor.

Nicely balance,cherry and plum nose. Very pleasant to the pallet with the cherry and plum lighting up the senses. Light oakiness going for a smooth finish. The alcohol level is an interesting factor here, because it is so well hidden by the fruitiness and smooth tanins. Will be a keeper for a while.
