Tasting notes

Our Port underwent a stylistic change in 2015 to become a ruby- or vintage-style wine. While monitoring this wine as it aged in barrel we found the fresh blackberry, red plum, and baking spice aromas so compelling that we decided to bottle it with only 22 months barrel aging. The palate is generous and round with surprising elegance for a wine of such structure. We highly suggest allowing this gem to slumber in your cellar for 5-7 years before enjoying it with a Raspberry tart drizzled with espresso and dark chocolate ganache. Even better, pair this wine with a campfire, close friends, and a box of cohibas.

Other notes

2015 was another in a string of spectacular vintages. Our nighttime temperatures were slightly above normal, which blessed us with an early, warm spring, a nearly ideal bloom period, an above-average fruit set, and a beautiful ripening period for the fruit. We were concerned about the lack of water with our ongoing drought conditions, but diligent attention in the vineyard and perfectly timed canopy management techniques allowed us to ripen our fruit without any detrimental water stress affecting the vines. We began harvest a full three weeks earlier than normal with exquisite ripeness and intense aromatic and flavor profiles.
