"Deep red. Powerful, spice-tinged cherry pit, black raspberry and orange pith scents are complemented by subtle vanilla and licorice notes and a hint of candied licorice. Concentrated yet lithe on the palate, offering bitter cherry and candied dried berry flavors that pick up a sweet mocha note on the back half. An exotic five-spice powder flourish emerges on the very long, subtly sweet finish, which is framed by smooth tannins."
Wine quality starts in the vineyard. The site is everything and the farming a parallel. Finding that right site to ultimately own and “put down roots” is time consuming and can be heartbreaking. After a long search I was lucky enough to find an entire hill for my vineyard, offering every exposure and containing innumerable soil types. Vineyards are complex ecosystems and take time to understand. Over my first ten years making wine, I used grapes from over 15 different vineyards, learning a lot: exposure, elevation, clone type, planting and management all effect the flavor of grapes. But one of the biggest factors, the one I focused on in choosing a site for my own vineyard, is the soils. -Winery
