Tasting notes

Dark garnet color. Creamy raspberry, cherry, black raspberry and black cherry fruit aromas with a nice balance of caramelly, toasted oak and some minty, smoke, vanilla, sage and basil undertones. Medium full on the pallet with cherry and black raspberry fruit, toasted oak and cola notes and a long, well structured finish. More of an elegant Bordeaux style than previous vintages.

Production notes

Grapes are from the south block of Hedges Estate Vineyard. Aged 17 months in 30% American and 70% French Oak. 100% new oak.

Other notes

Harvest Notes: Fairly consistent temperatures during bloom and set led to a nice, even set. A typically warm summer led into a late August early September ripening period of several days that were hot and dry followed by several cool days, causing sugar levels to spike up then drop to more “normal” levels. This pattern repeated itself, then changed to more typical extended fall ripening conditions of warm days and cool nights in later September. Our philosophy of picking at optimum flavor maturity caused us to ignore the higher brix early on and our patience was rewarded with later development of wonderfully elegant flavors that carried over into our wines.
