The wine is full of life and encapsulates everything one could yearn from this highly fruited grape. The wine sings with high tones of cold raspberry jam, end of season cherry and the slightly burnt edges of your mom’s brambleberry pie.
About the wine
The 2016 growing season in Sonoma was rather boring and uneventful…always a good thing for farmers. The season was early with bud break starting in February and flowering a month later. The spring was warm with minor rains that stunted development, leaving small bunches. The summer was quite moderate with minor heat spikes in June and July. August itself was rather cool with cloudy days. This gave the grapes time to balance sugars and maturity. Harvest started mid September and progressed through to the end of October. The fruit was healthy with no issues at harvest. All of this bodes well for killer wine, with fresh acids and ripe tannins.

"Like chocolate cherries wrapped around a gold brick! A behemoth that leaves my head spinning with their unmatched color and thickly indulgent mouthfeel. Mmm...chewy. It’s like drinking Shafer if you could afford Shafer every night. Uncommon wow factor drinking at its peak!”
