Winemaker Notes
The aromas showcase a medley of intense blueberry, blackberry and black currant notes, intertwined with hints of ginger, chestnut and cedar. On the palate, the wine’s smooth, velvety entry belies its natural depth and extraction, which is revealed in abundant lush dark berry and cassis layers.
The 2007 growing season began early and was unusually dry, with rainfall totals that were 50 percent below average. Cool spring weather continued into the summer with temperatures down by approximately 5 degrees from August through October. The cool, steady weather produced a long harvest spread out over 80 days. This relaxed pace allowed us to pick in multiple passes, ensuring ideal ripening and flavor development in the fruit.
