Winemaker's Notes

(From 2003 Vintage) Winemaker notes: This is our darkest Sangiovese to date – gorgeous, saturated magenta to the rim. The razor-precise fruit nose is loaded with bright, dense red fruits and high-tone floral notes. The wine is refreshing on the pallet with bright acidity, while providing rich crème cassis and other red fruit flavors and excellent length. Vineyards in this Wine: Mill Creek, Seven Hills and Pepper Bridge. 100% Walla Walla Valley Aging Profile: Aged in new French Puncheons and 30 hectoliter ovals read more...Winemaker notes: This is our darkest Sangiovese to date – gorgeous, saturated magenta to the rim.

    (From 2002 Vintage) Though I was not a fan of the 2002, I was enraptured by the 2003 Merlot. Chocolate, cassis liqueur, cherries jubilee, spices, and violets are found in its magnificent aromatics. Aged in 80% new oak (of which 80% is French and the balance Pennsylvania), this concentrated gem slathers the palate with black raspberries, copious quantities of cherries, and blackberries that envelope its significant tannin. Projected maturity: now-2016.
