2016 was a very high quality vintage on the North Coast. Bud break got off to an early start coming out of a warm and dry winter. Fruit set was ideal giving a perfect fruit to canopy ratio. Moderate temperatures during the final ripening stages led to perfectly balanced fruit. This combination of factors led to wines with pure and layered flavors with excellent characteristics.
Deep ruby color; the nose is complex and shows layers of dark fruit flavors, including
blueberry, rich plum and red raspberry. Soft notes of vanilla and toast provide aromatic
richness. The 2016 is lush in the mouth with smooth tannins and a long finish.
