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. Since WSU began recording heat units, the 2012 vintage was right on track with a “perfect average.” The wines of this vintage show beautiful characteristics of fruit ripeness while remaining elegant and balanced.

Awards & Accolades
91 Pts, Wine&Spirits: "Scents of mocha and black cherry provide a generous introduction to this stylish red. With some air, the oak is more prominent, combining with the fruit and the firm, supple tannins to lend a savory impression."
GOLD; Seattle Wine Awards: ""
