Production Notes
Planted in the early 2000’s, our Tannat makes up just 0.85 acres of our estate vineyards. This site is well suited for Tannat, with many high-degree days to give this big varietal time to ripen. In fact, it is the largest yielding block on our Estate. After harvest the fruit was fermented in stainless steel tanks and then racked to French oak barrels (40% new), for 25 months prior to bottling in November 2016.
Vineyard Notes
2014 was another early and warm vintage. This resulted in prime flavor development of the fruit to display its finest attributes. Overall, the vintage produced grapes of high quality, dense flavors, and balanced acidity. The grapes were harvested on September 7, 2014 at optimum ripeness.
