With the 2016 growing season having an unusually warm start to the growing season, we saw bud break and blooming almost a full two weeks earlier than previous vintages. The consistently cooler mid-summer temperatures also extended the growing season, which provided beautifully ripened fruit. This wine displays aromatics of blackberry, black cherry, and black currant, and is brought full circle with its nuanced oak profile of vanilla, cedar and cocoa. The palate is smooth with soft yet supple tannins that provide a juicy long-lasting finish. Try pairing with something with a little more Umami Flavor such as a marinated ribeye or braised short ribs.
