Tasting notes

Dark purple, almost black color. Wow, intense aromas of earthy spices, cinnamon, orange peel, cocoa powder and coffee. Hint of perfume and fresh picked blueberries. Just a touch of vanilla. Bright, tart entry with a soft, pleasing mid-palate that has flavors of blueberry, rhubarb pie, vanilla, coffee and a touch of worn leather. A classically crafted food wine.

Production notes

Grapes are from Bel’ Villa Vineyard, which is in the Red Mountain AVA. The wine was destemmed and partially crushed into stainless steel fermenters where it was punched down three times per day until desired tannin extraction was achieved. It was then pressed to barrels where it underwent malo-lactic fermentation, then racked off lees and 100% barrel aged for 17 months in 30% new American and French oak.

Other notes

Harvest Notes: 2012 was another excellent and more normal vintage in Washington State, a welcome change after the cooler and wetter 2010 and 2011 vintages. The “fading” La Nina current brought warmer and more even spring and summer temperatures and an extended warm, dry autumn with perfect 80 to 85 Fahrenheit afternoon highs and 40 to 50 Fahrenheit lows without rain. The result was great set that yielded ripe, disease free fruit with good natural acidity. The resulting wines reflect the excellent qualities of the fruit and are a pleasure to drink. Probably one of the top 5 vintages I’ve been associated with in Washington State.
