WINEMAKER’S NOTES

Brooding and dark, this wine is impressive and intriguing. Aromas of vanilla, anise, cedar, black cherries and expensive cigar bounce from one to the other seamlessly. Soft but expansive on the palate, it will age well for several years. Raspberries and baker’s chocolate are the front runner flavors but a little time in the glass reveals a complex matrix if orange zest and cherry marmalade that keeps you coming back. Drink now through 2019.

VINTAGE

The harvest of 2011 had a cool, wet spring and cool summer providing moderate growing conditions and a crop size small enough to take advantage fo the cool weather.  About mid-October a series of storms that usually stay in Washington State and Oregon decided on a not so small excursion to Northern California.  These early rains made for a challenging harvest, but the dedication of growers to wait for the grapes to dry out, coupled with the winemaking team going aroud the clock when the weather was good, resulted in some really nice wines.  The colors are dark, rivaling the 2010 vintage, flavors are luscious and tannins moderate.
