Tasting Notes

This wine is big up front with dark bramble berries, toasted marshmallow, tobacco and baking spices. Delicate floral forest with a hint of mushrooms, nutrient rich soil, ending with a smooth light finish of caramel tones.

Vineyard Designation

Sams Valley Vineyard

Vineyard Notes

The vineyard experienced a cool spring with late bud swell, a hot summer, and then frost in October. High bird pressure in the late fall. Harvest was somewhat late. We had our final harvest the week before Thanksgiving.
