Winemaker Notes

Pale golden color. Pineapple fruit, braised pear, and fig aromas, sweet oak, and dried herbs. Tart apple fruit entry, pineapple, citrus, and an elegant texture; long, refreshing firm acid finish. EB (2/17)

Vintage Notes

Mild winter weather resulted in early budbreak. Spring rains affected bloom, reducing yields by one-third. A warm, fog-free summer ripened the crop for an early September harvest. In barrel, vineyard parcels were kept separate; at the tenth month, we assembled the most elegant lots. This out- standing vintage shows well defined mountain fruit and firm acidity. It will be most enjoyable over the next eight to ten years.
