Rich aromas of pie cherries, black plums, and currants lead to delicate notes of exotic spices, ﬂower blossoms and dusty gravel. Flavors of dark mixed fruits and raspberries mingle with notes of mineral and clove. Well-structured with soft tannins, this wine delivers a layered, lingering ﬁnish.
The 2009 vintage is the result of a roller coaster growing season. Mother Nature could not make up her mind! A wet, cooler spring gave way to early, hot summer days in May, leading to a late bud break. Then it cooled oﬀ once again and then proceeded to warm up again. All of this weather change made for an exciting harvest of smaller berries with amazing, concentrated fruit and polished tannins. Incredible dark garnet color, great fruit intensity and subtle minerality make our 2009 vintage exceptionally structured, perfectly balanced and a joy to drink.
