Tasting Notes: The wine has a very rich purple, red-garnet color. Dark red and black fruit aromas like cherry, black cherry, blackberry and cassis, toasted oak, slight vanilla, with hints of maple syrup and allspice. On the palate this wine is medium full bodied and slightly sweet with cherry, black cherry and blackberry fruit, toasted oak and hints of maple syrup and clove spice. The mouthfeel is lush on the entry, lively in the mid-palate and finishes long with evident tannins and a hint of tartness

Production notes

Almost all of the fruit for this wine is from Obelisco Vineyard. The high density planting yields smaller berries, which contribute to the concentrated flavors. Combine this with 19 months in 45% new oak and you get a wine that invitingly combines great fruit and oak.



Vineyard notes

2009 was a fairly “normal” year early on, which led to normal set. The summer had normal heat with about half the average number of days over 100 Fahrenheit, leading to earlier than usual sugar accumulation and concurrent ripening of normally separated varieties. Combine this with a hotter than normal 3rd week of September, which caused some premature shriveling, and a frost the 10th of October, and it made for a very busy first 3 weeks of September and a “crazy” last week of September and 3 weeks in October. We managed to harvest at peak maturity, which made for another great vintage.
