"Ultrarich and deeply extracted, this is potent and concentrated, with tiers of fig, anise, honeydew, apricot and apple, revealing a pithy tannic presence and a long finish. Drink now through 2021. 474 cases made."

VINEYARD: Richard Dinner Vineyard in Sonoma Mountain, planted on clay loam and gravel with strata of volcanic tuff.

FERMENTATION:Hand-Harvested, night pick. Whole cluster pressed and barrel fermented with native yeast.

AGING: 15 Months in French Oak barrels, 63% new. Aged sur lies with biweekly bâtonnage.

VINTAGE REPORT: The 2015 vintage began in late winter due to unseasonably warm temperatures leading to an early bud break, and thus an elongated growing season. Overall yields were lighter than average with smaller cluster and berry size as a result of cooler temperatures during bloom and the third consecutive year of drought. The resultant wines show increased concentration of flavors with wonderful balance and round textures.
