Winemaker Notes
· Overflowing with Howell Mountain aromatics highlighting dark brambly fruit, wild berry pie notes, ripe blackberry and plum aromas, as well as sweet cedar, dark chocolate, tarragon, nutmeg and coffee · On the palate, this beautifully balanced wine offers a rich, ripe entry, with a firm, yet approachable structure · Flavors of chocolate, sweet cedar, clove, cinnamon and tobacco mingle in the complex mid-palate and carry through to a long, satisfying finish
Production
· 2009 presented certain challenges—from early shatter to late-season rain · We responded with site-specific techniques that included aggressive leafing, an early thinning protocol and a heavy field sort to select only the most desirable grapes · Attention to detail in the vineyards, and during harvest and sorting, yielded high quality fruit
