Produced only in select years worthy years. Classic cassis aromatics that open to concentrated berry fruit, damson plum and earth notes are beautifully complemented by judicious barrel age and selection. The wine's undeniable ripeness is attributed to extremely low yields and a pick date of November 23. Poised, lenghy and impressionable.

Growing Conditions

2015 was a solid vintage following brutally cold temperatures and snowfall in February which caused some damage and reduced overall yields. Variable temperatures in the spring and a damp June were fortunately tempered by a hot and dry July and August. These ideal growing conditions persevered through a warm and lengthy autumn during the final stages of maturation. The vintage shows whites of complexity and freshness while the reds, as a result of lower yields and extended ripening, are layered, elegant and plush.
