(2012 Vintage) A dry mild spring induced early stress in the Cabernet vineyards. As summer rolled in, and the fog remained at bay, we moved diligently through the blocks adjusting the vine canopies to maintain dappled sunlight on the developing berries. While nighttime temperatures preserved the acidity that most appreciate in this wine, the consistent warmth of the season is really what drives the flavor profile in this vintage.
Tyler enjoyed at IMG dinner at Bacchanalia (December 2014), and Bruce Siegal gave us a bottle from his own collection which we enjoyed with Stinnetts in Cashiers 12/27/14.
heavily minerally. lightly acidic. Pleasant earthyness and mustness, distinct from the limestone minerality. thick gamminess and fruitiness.
