Aromatic notes of ripe blackberry, boysenberry, and red apple followed by hints of dry herbs. Vibrant flavors of very ripe boysenberry, and plum pie with rosemary and sage balanced by firm tannins and a long, structured and mouthwatering finish.
The 2017 vintage experienced a challenging season with a lot of rain and humidity. Spring was cool and once warm weather arrived, growth came quickly with plenty of water and nutrients for the vines. We began picking the grapes in the third week of August, with fruit quality above average and characterized by small berries with good concentration. This vintage displays vibrant fruit-forward notes and beautiful structure.
