Full-bodied. Concentrated. Opulent. These are some of the descriptors we often hear applied to our wines. However, we also hear the words elegant, balanced, complex. Yes, through hard work in the vineyard and winery, we believe you can have it all, the best of both worlds. Our approach to winemaking is simple, yet difficult. We prefer to intervene in nature’s process as little as possible. We often rely on uninoculated fermentations and use minimal new oak. We rarely fine or filter. However, we are not dogmatic and will intervene if we feel it results in a higher quality wine while still remaining true to the vineyard.

2007 Vintage

A near perfect growing season. An early, dry spring led to earlier than normal budbreak. Textbook weather at bloom ensured a moderate-size crop. Substantial rain fell between October 9th and October 19th but all but a few small lots had already been picked. A year of very vibrant, fresh, and pure wines, lower in alcohol and higher in acidity.
