Wine Profile
Vineyard Notes
2015 was one of the earliest harvests on record in Sonoma County. Although the summer was generally mild, spring’s dry warm weather accelerated vine development, ultimately producing smaller berries and concentrated flavors. Sustained warm weather coupled with depleted water reserves culminated with a furiously paced compact harvest that was completed before the end of September, producing a vintage of exceptional quality. Aggressive hand canopy management was maintained throughout the season. Yield management techniques were employed to ensure even ripening and to keep crop loads in balance.
Production Notes
60% pump-over fermentation in closed-top stainless steel with delestage through tub and screen; 20% small, open-top fermentation with hand punch-down cap management; 20% stainless steel rotary tank fermentation. Fermented on the skins from 7 to 12 days before being transferred to barrels to complete malolactic fermentation.

85% Zinfandel, 9% Petite Sirah, 3% Carignane, 3% Syrah
Food Pairing Notes
