Although this is a particularly warm vintage these grapes still produced a wine which expresses the cool climate in which they are grown. The nose burst with a ripe mixture huckleberry, blueberry, and plum with a backdrop of violet, pepper, and wet earth. The hallmark acidity of this wine is again present on the palate and complemented by a touch of “grit” provided by the small percentage of Petite Sirah blended into the wine. Two years in barrel has softened the palate and added aromas of vanilla, cedar, and clove.
