Aromas of plum and black current mingle with ripe, juicy flavors of black cherry and strawberry jam. Well integrated tannins unfold into a rich layered finish. The firm tannins make it a terrific pairing with tri-tip steak, sausage, and juicy burgers.
Following a picture-perfect 2012 growing season, the 2013 vintage was another beaut. Spring came early and lasted long. In the summer, cool nights led into overcast mornings that were followed by breezy, warm afternoons. These temperate conditions and ideal temperatures made the 2013 growing season an excellent one for even ripening and good flavor development.
