Dark plum color with deep scarlet highlights. Aromas of Bing cherry, cocoa, and marionberry.
Rich and well balanced with plum, Bing cherry, cola, and sweet baking spices flavors. A rounded mouthfeel with bright acidity and a long, smooth finish.
The 2019 vintage began with a very mild and dry winter until, in mid-January, a storm track directed much-needed precipitation to California. Despite a growing season marked by exceptional variability, the grapes were able to mature evenly and retain their natural acidity. We started harvesting in early September and completed harvest in the third week of October.
