Tasting Note

Hailing from the 100 year old Story Vineyard, raspberry reduction sauce and black licorice are the most expressive aromas. Well-structured and firm tannins frame a core of fresh red fruit making this broad shouldered wine notably age-worthy. Drink 2016 - 2020. 

Vintage Note

Overall the 2013 vintage was a grand slam and the best I’ve seen in 15 years. Temperatures were never too extreme and here in Amador County, we rarely saw days over 100F. As is typical, we continued to experience the dramatic diurnal temperature swings in the evenings, where nighttime lows dipped into the upper 40F’s providing the perfect conditions for optimal acid development. Grapes ripened evenly and the colors, tannins, and overall flavor matrix across all varieties was stunning. Veraison occurred a few weeks early, which allowed the grapes an exceptional amount of hang time enabling them to develop excellence in every facet. The resulting wines from this vintage are deep and concentrated, and I am confident they will be enjoyed for years to come.
