This concentrated wine, smooth and round in structure, with a lingering finish, and ample integrated tannins suggests a wine with great aging potential.

Winemaker Notes
The aroma is a medley of raspberry, strawberry, black currant, and cassis highlighted by smoky bacon and a touch of mint. Ripe fruit flavors of raspberry, strawberry, and cherry are complemented by toasty oak and vanilla.
Production
The 2002 season began in late August. After harvesting the first white grapes, we entered a heat wave unlike any in recent years. The normal cycle of morning fog that provides natural air conditioning was noticeably absent! September had well above average temperatures dramatically affecting ripening and resulted in a compressed harvest season. Diversification of fruit sources and the dedicated commitment from our production staff helped us to overcome the challenges of the 2002 vintage.
