Tasting notes

 

Cabernet Franc/ Syrah blend. This wonderful blend of 60% Cab Franc, 30% Syrah, and 10% Merlot is full bodied and brimming with dark and red berry fruit, warm toasty oak, and outstanding structure. Each grape variety reveals itself in layers of rich black cherry, plum, blackberry and cassis. Patient aging in French and eastern European oak for 18 month, had brought this blend into balance adding to its rich finish. The structure and long finish of this wine make it a perfect match for grilled meats and hearty dishes.

Production notes

 Harvest 2015

For the second year in a row, the 2015 harvest began as one of the earliest on record in Sonoma County.

A crazy harvest that saw a hand full of varieties ripping within two weeks of each other, including white varietals such as Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay, and Pinot Blanc, and Pinot Gris, and red varietals Pinot Noir, Grenache, and Zinfandel. With this being said you can imagine how crazy and fast wineries filled up.

Farming was a challenge this year with a warm winter, a cool spring and a couple of summer heat waves that resulted in a high-quality vintage but a very small yield compared to the last couple of record breaking vintages. The 2015 vintage has produced tremendous wines both richness and elegance. Make sure you get your hands on some because there is not going to be many produced. Cheers!
