Vintage Notes

Despite a dry winter, late spring rains carried the vines to harvest. Reduced yields and a warm summer quickly ripened the crop. Long, slow fermentations finished sugar, while extracting significant tannin. Barreling down early gave this vintage more time in wood than any thus far. Appealing now, it will be most enjoyable over the next five years. JO/EB (11/15)
