Winemaker's Notes: After five years of drought, we welcomed a return to normal winter rainfall in 2016. These early season rains replenished the vineyards to begin a near-ideal growing season. After a warm spring led to an early budbreak, summer seemed to arrive quickly on the Central Coast. While we had abundant warmth in July and August, cool evenings allowed the grapes to mature perfectly, and harvest commenced in mid-August. While the grapes were small and dense, good-sized clusters delivered yields close to our annual averages.
TASTING NOTES from Wine.com: "This wine is flavourful and balanced. Its aromas and flavours of pure red fruit, savory spices, and brown stems are the real things when it comes to this grape variety. Pair it with a crown roast of lamb and enjoy." (Tasted: October 17, 2018, San Francisco, CA)
