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.

2013 Vintage

One of if not the most driest years in recorded history. Very early budbreak and textbook weather at bloom led to an early, highly compressed, and record-sized harvest. With no severe heat spikes and no rain post veraison, fruit was immaculate. However, some vines showed severe hydric stress and had to have their fruit dropped prior to harvest. Resulting wines are deeply colored and fruited, often with more tannin than usual.
