Tasting Notes

The nose opens up with fresh characters of tropical fruit intermingled with citrus.

The first sip is like biting into a perfectly ripe Honey Crisp apple with flavors of lemon curd on the mid-palate. This crisp, beautifully balanced wine finishes clean with a touch of minerality.

The buds pushed in early March after they had enjoyed adequate rainfall during the late winter and early spring. The vines leafed out at their normal time with warm, frost-free weather. The soils held enough water to supply good vine growth all the way past bloom. When flowering occurred, we had dry weather and a good fruit set. The weather heated up in mid-August, with several days in a row over 100 degrees. This hastened ripening, and harvest began in our estate vineyards on August 17th. After the heat passed, we had good ripening weather throughout the harvest. Grapes retained their acidity giving us age-worthy wines with the long enough hang time on the vines for flavors to develop. We finished harvest with nice yields and great quality.
