Winemaker Notes
Showcasing Monitor Ledge’s bright red fruit, Rector Creek’s darker red fruit elements, and Patzimaro’s sophisticated mineral, earth and olive character, the final blend displays nuance and varietal integrity. On the palate, subtle notes of herb, spice, toffee and mocha mingle with layers of cassis, currant and black raspberry to add complexity and elegance.
Production
The 2006 growing season was marked by a very mild summer with a mid-July heat spike that accelerated ripening. Mild temperatures continued throughout the fall allowing for a moderately paced harvest. The long growing season brought complex and intense flavor and aroma development.
