First, get excited for the 2018 vintages to come out. It was one of the best and largest growing seasons we have had in a long time. It started in late February, after a winter with average rainfall, and continued through spring and summer with steady temperatures, no significant frost damage, and no heat spikes. This allowed even ripening and an unhurried, calm harvest. As you taste this wine, you will get to experience complex flavors including black cherry and allspice with the benefit of a rich velvety texture. Exotic spices and vanilla will fill the aromas coming out of the glass.
