 Tasting Notes & Food Pairing

 Cigar box aromas mingle with rich cocoa and coffee on the nose.  The round and smooth mouth-fell is braced by ripe blackberry and blueberry with hints of oak and touch of vanilla on the finish.  Pair this blend with bleu cheese crusted filet mignon, fish sautéed with tomato, garlic, and black olive concasse, or traditional Beef Wellington.

 Vintage Notes

 With the perfect balance of warm temperatures and occasional rainfall, the 2012 season turned into an exceptional vintage. Bud break occurred during mid-March, about five weeks earlier than usual, and set the tone for the rest of the season. Rivaling the impeccable 2010 vintage, 2012 also saw a large number of growing degree days, ideal for fully ripened grapes and bold wines. Due to the below average rainfall throughout the summer months, disease pressure remained low, allowing fruit to thrive with little intervention.
