I like what this winery is doing across the board, and I think they have plenty of potential to go even further”

Winemaker Tasting Notes -
A gorgeous glowing transparent dark ruby. The density of fruit is the first thing to hit the nose, cherry pie with hints of blueberry cheesecake and rum. Shifting into maraschino cherry and Chinese five spices. The floral aspects really kick in then, aromatic violets and lilly. On the palate, this is our big boy - full of black fruit and cherry across the whole experience. Fresh and alive, aspects of root beer and hard candy then lead to the abundant tannin. In my opinion, this wine screams Gigondas. If you're looking for a Rhone wine from Vaucluse made in California, step right up. And this fella is going to age just as well
The fruit was picked the night of September 11th. One of the earliest picks from this site. We gently destemmed into a stainless steel tank. It was then cold soaked for five days. After which time, we allowed native, indigenous yeast to start fermentation. The primary fermentation lasted 14 days at which pointed we sealed the tank and allowed the wine to steep on the skins for an additional 30 days. Then it was pressed into once used French oak barrels, keeping the press wine separate. It aged for 23 months, undisturbed, except for a monthly topping and bottled in August of 2019, unfiltered and unfined.
