"Nicely defined with the distinct tropical fruit and flowers of Viognier plainly evident right from the first, this sizeable, deeply drawn working is at once as lively as it is so very rich. It is full and slightly fleshy with a neatly fit compliment of freshening acidity and a very long finish that exhibits great fruity life. It does a remarkable job at hiding its claimed 15.8% alcohol, and, as well-filled and delicious as it is now, it is balanced to last and does not demand hasty drinking."
2015, the 4th year of a drought, continued the string of low rainfall seasons, however this steep mountainside location works well for the variety, particularly benefiting from the dramatic temperature swings of its south facing exposure and the afternoon blasts of cool coastal marine airflows. A controlled watering regime, known as “deficit irrigation” added to vine stress and flavor enhancement. Harvested in late August the fruit was hand sorted, whole cluster pressed, fermented primarily in neutral, previously used barrels (plus a small percentage in new oak), went through full malolactic and remained in barrel for nearly 1 year.
