From the winemaker:

WINEMAKER’S NOTES:

Aromas of bursting ripe black cherry and blueberries with notes of milk chocolate,
coffee and sweet smoke lend to a balance of plush fruit and powdery tannins in
the mid-palate, ending with a long and lingering finish with notes of bing cherry
and spice.

VINEYARD SOURCING:

The fruit for this wine is grown at our acclaimed Estate vineyards in the Horse
Heaven Hills. The fruit is exposed to dappled sunlight, allowing for uniform
ripening and flavor development. Well balanced crop levels have allowed us to
create wines with great depth and concentration.

GROWING SEASON:

The 2019 vintage was a cooler vintage which allowed for even ripening and flavor
development. This lent to great acidity and fresh fruit aromas. The consistent
temperate conditions allowed for an elegant style of grape maturation.

WINEMAKING:

These grapes were sorted in the vineyard with the selective harvest on our Pellenc
Harvesters. The fruit was not crushed in order to preserve as much whole-berry as
possible. At the winery, individual lots were fermented in stainless steel tanks.
Twice daily pumpovers allowed gentle extraction of color and tannins. This blend
was aged for 16 months in 25% New French and American Oak.
