Vineyard Notes
2017 brought recovery from years of drought as the season began with welcome rainfall that refilled reserviors and rejuvenated soils. A mild spring was followed by a heat wave in late August and early September, which marked the start of harvest right on schedule.
Production Notes
This extremely age-worthy wine was fermented in stainless steel tanks for 27 days following 5 to 8 days of cold soak to intensify the mountain fruit characteristics. Aged in 70% new French oak for 20 months, racked barrel-to-barrel, and bottled unfiltered. Although enjoyable upon release, this wine will easily cellar 15 to 20 years.
Tasting Notes
Luscious dark mountain fruit aromas of plum and juicy cherry excite the nose, followed by ripe flavors laced with cassis, warm black plums and fresh figs, with a dusty dark chocolate undercurrent. Powerful, masculine tannins show a powerful yet refined structure that delivers a round mouthfeel and supple texture.
Food Pairing Notes
Complex and layered, this wine would do well with dishes such as braised lamb with fennel, or grilled Kansas City strip steak paired with Parmesan creamed spinach. For a cheese course, try an aged Irish Cheddar or Pecorino Romano, an Italian sheep’s milk cheese.
