The spice profile of the wine is extremely rich thanks to the vintage. Mostly nutmeg and fresh mint, completed by dried fruits, plum, black currant and date. Deliciously long acids and soft tannins, a dream food wine.

Hand-sorted and pre-cooled berries gently crushed and briefly soaked. Controlled malolactic fermentation in small French barrels followed by 20 days of total maceration. Aged for 10 months in new and used in 80% used, 20% new French barrels.
Timely bud-break, no late frosts, and a lovely, rainy-humid spring marked the start, followed by a balanced and warm early-spring. However, April surprised us with some frost causing some damage to our NW vineyards. The blooming and binding period was perfect leading to full and healthy bunches. Frequently heavy rainstorms complicated vineyard work during the summer month and led to pre-harvest. In August, well-balanced warm (28-30 C) days helped to achieve silky tannins and deep colors while the cool (16-18 C) nights contributed to building optimal acidity structure in the red wines of 2016.
