Tasting Notes by Winemaker Charles Smith

“Dark brooding spice, cold ash, black plum again echoing the aroma in the mouth. Black fruit, wet stone and assorted olives. Elegant to be sure.”

Vintage Notes

The 2018 vintage was incredible! This outstanding vintage began mild followed by a long and dry ripening season in the fall. This enabled us to hang the fruit to reach optimal ripeness without losing acidity or increasing sugars. The wines from 2018 are exceptional in many ways, from the great expression of the whites to the beautiful refinement and complexity of the reds. Enjoy!

Current & Past Scores

94 Points – Jeb Dunnuck (v2017)

“The only wine fermented in stainless steel and aged in 30% new puncheons... reveals a deep ruby color as well as ripe, sexy notes of blackberries, raspberries, black pepper, leafy herbs, and smoked game. It’s rich, medium-bodied, layered, and just a beautiful wine that will keep for 8-10 years.”

92 Points – James Suckling (v2017)

“This syrah has a pretty, creamy and lightly chewy texture with chocolate powder and light meat to the berries and spice. Medium to full body. Flavorful finish. Drink now.”
