This wine has a nose of exotic spices and dried fruits. This classic old vine character also exhibits notes of lavender. On the palate, full in body and very ripe, the dark fruit on the first taste melds into mildly spicy fruit with a hint of roasted coffee towards the end. Overall, this dusty and bold wine offers ample flavor.
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.
