Tasting Notes

The wine starts out with a fresh black cherry aroma with a hint of sarsaparilla and black pepper. The wine fills your mouth with juicy threads of ripe plums and young raspberries and finishes with a velvety smooth taste of light coffee. Medium yet solid tannins show through and a balanced acidity from start to finish.

Vineyard Designation

Sams Valley Vineyard

Vineyard Notes

The spring gave us a warm and flowering and fruit set with a high quality of fruit. The rest of the year gave the vineyard a long growing season with very little frost pressure in the spring or the fall. We had an average heat index that got us through a harvest ending in late October.
