The nose offers rich, resonant boysenberry notes with whispers of wild thyme and stony minerality as their backdrop. Juicy black cherries, purple berries, and pomegranate molasses fill the mouth with bright, glossy energy, while subtle notes of sweet tobacco and juniper berry broaden the spectrum of flavors on the mid-palate. Sleek tannins bring slippery texture and a luxurious mouthfeel, gliding seamlessly into a finish of fragrant mint tea and raspberry pie.
The 2017 vintage combined a cooler summer with a precocious heat wave in the ripening season, which produced ripe, darker fruit flavors with plenty of energy – and an early harvest that safeguarded our fruit from wildfire smoke damage.
