WINEMAKER NOTES

The aromas of this wine are reminiscent of springtime—moist, thawing earth mingling with notes of cherry blossoms and strawberries. On the palate, the bright strawberry streak continues, complemented by flavors of pie cherries and tangerine zest. The vibrant acidity and noticeable minerality leave you with a mouthwatering, zingy finish.

The 2012 Vintage

Spring brought us more precipitation than usual, followed by a hot, dry summer. We experienced plenty of warm days without it being overly hot, and this is exactly what the grape vines like—we were right where we wanted to be in terms of heat units received. We began harvest in mid September and finished in approximately 5 weeks. 2012 boasted our largest harvest of exceptional fruit so far!
