Why You'll Love It

Moderate red hue, becoming lighter towards the rim with expressive aromas of bakers spice, cherry and cola that rise from the glass. Smooth texture on the palate, working well alongside a crisp red apple skin acidity, providing a perfect balance to the oak notes of toasted creme brulee and forest floor and fruit compote. This adds to the mouthwatering finish of the wine, persisting on the palate long after the wine is swallowed.

Vintage Notes

The mild winter combined with substantial rains in February and March gave the vines a vigorous start. The late falling spring rains along with cool temperatures in May meant that fruit-set was reduced, naturally lowering the yield of fruit each vine produced. The weather started to warm up as spring moved into summer, providing our vineyards with the optimal climate to undergo veraison, where upon the grapes skins softened, natural grape acid declined, sugar was generated and the grape skins started to color. As harvest approached, the combination of warm days and cool nights ensured full physiological ripeness of the fruit both in terms of fruit flavor development and tannin maturity together with acidity retention so crucial for fine wine balance; however, because the peak daytime temperatures exceeded those in 2014, this vintage was one of the earliest in over a decade.
