Tasting Note:

"This is a dark purple wine with spicy aromas of dark fruits, dark chocolate, black pepper, tea leaves, oak and vanilla. There are spicy flavors of black pepper, blackberry, blueberry, black cherry, molasses and chocolate. Winemaker Kevin Hall says: 'there is mouth filling texture with a long finish on this big, lush wine.'”

About the Wine:

"The majority of the grapes were harvested from a valley floor vineyard on West Dry Creek Road where the gravelly loam soil produces fruit with pronounced jammy flavors of black cherry, plum and black pepper.  The balance were harvested from a hillside vineyard on Dry Creek Road with red rocky soil.  This location produces smaller berries with higher acidity and dark fruit flavors of blackberry and blueberry.

At the winery, the fruit was cold-soaked for 24 hours, then individual lots were inoculated with different yeasts to achieve more complexity in the glass.  Twice daily pumpovers followed to extract color, structure and flavor.  The wine was barrel aged for 14 months to allow the tannins to soften and the blend of the different lots to harmonize.

The western drought continued in 2015 and was once again the topic of much discussion.  A cool spring, rain at bloom and hot July along with the continued effects from the lack of rain contributed to lower yields.  As a result the grapes had terrific concentration and superb fruit flavors at harvest.  After harvest the different lots were de-stemmed, fermented separately, then aged in American oak barrels for 14 months."
