Winemaker's Notes

Sweet wines are in unison with reds. This year, cold nights of august and glorious sun of September give a very complex vintage. The wine is great, complex, and exuberant.

    No quibbles here. This is a concentrated, fairly complex offering whose pear syrup, pineapple, roasted nuts, coconutty aromas may be the slightest bit unusual but are every bit inviting. Juicy and rich in flavor with more than a touch of honey noted, the wine has plenty of underlying acidity that helps make its youthfully sugary flavors attractive even now but which also guarantees that this lush wine has a second decade and possibly more in its future.
