Tasting Notes

The 2013 vintage stunned us with a second year of exceptional growing conditions, and controlled vigor through the growing season grew grapes with strong aromatics, rich flavor and balanced brightness. The complex nose begins with hazelnut, crisp white peach, alpine strawberries, marigold and green tea. Essence of ginger, Meyer lemon rind and roasted grain notes appear at a second glance. A rich, balanced wine that continues to transform with unique flavors developing every time we open a bottle.
