The 2013 vintage was "cool" in every sense of the word. We had a very mild summer and a crisp fall, which allowed the grapes to ripen slowly and fully. It was an abundant harvest which provided lots of delicious fruit. The 2013 vintage is showing lively spices and ripe berry nuances. Aromas of red cherry, dried flowers and pepper fill the senses. The palate is full of wonderful fruity complexity, combining a mixture of red plum, black cherry and red cherry. There's a spicy undertone and the tannins are silky and smooth. This beautiful wine has excellent structure and balance with a lush and rounded quality that lingers sip after sip.
