Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
A deep and concentrated wine with mature fruit on the nose and hints of cherry and oak. On the palate, very juicy with a meaty fruit entry and intensely concentrated and pronounced red fruit flavors. A touch of rose petal and bright white pepper spice on the mid-palate offer complexity.
Production Notes
After a series of dry years from 2006-2009 the 2010 was set up for a successful harvest by a wet winter. A cool spring was followed by a lower than average amount of heat placing the region comparable to a University of California at Davis region III, similar to Oakville or Livermore. There was no significant rain during harvest, disease pressure was low and vineyard weeds were not a problem.
Winemaker Notes
The crop size was smaller than average at 80% of “normal”. Fruit flavors were especially intense the wine colors dark. By using our standard “Cool Ferment” technique where yeast is added immediately but the fermentation temperature is held to 75 degrees maximum for red wines we had the advantage of a cool soak without the added problems of unwanted micro flora. We only had about 10-15% new oak for most of the wine. These wines are really fabulous: intense, dark, full of dark fruit flavors. There is still a bit of the holiday spice character that is typical of warmer vintages but it is more subtle.
