(From 2010 Vintage) The 2010 growing season was a classic one with slightly warm days/cool nights, lower yields and just enough heat to ripen the fruit. The resultant wines display elegantly concentrated fruit qualities, bright acidity and our signature balance.
Connoisseurs' Guide to California WinesAt 15.7% alcohol, this wine has the potential to lose its way to excess, but its balance and its depth of fruit prove the point that it is not ripeness by itself that is the culprit. You will find this one simply loaded with precise, utterly delicious blackberry fruit, and it is so carefully crafted that its alcohol is not intrusive. It is certain to get better with a few years of age, but its immediate appeals are hard to resist.
