Boasting a perfumed nose of black and Bing cherries, orange oil, baking spices, white pepper, and just a hint of leather. The entry is incredibly silky and opens up to a seamless mouthfeel. Flavors of morello cherry, orange zest, sage, and cedar are prominent and persist through to a long finish. Drinking beautifully now.

2018 showcased a cooler, more even season without much in the way of heat spikes or cold snaps. The canopies were healthy, full, and crop set was balanced. Overall, it was a classic and easy growing vintage that made really beautiful wines of terrific balance, intensity, and texture. Readily accessible upon release but will also age well. Terrific vintage basically for all varietals.
