Terroir/Vinification

Vintage 2015 was one of the earliest harvests on record in Sonoma County. Although the summer was generally mild, spring’s dry warm weather accelerated vine development, ultimately producing smaller berries and concentrated flavors. Sustained warm weather coupled with depleted water reserves culminated with a furiously paced compact harvest that was completed before the end of September, producing a vintage of exceptional quality.

Climate Dry summers with little to no rainfall. Rains through the winter months. Average annual rainfall is 800mm. Annual high temperate is 22.6C; annual low temperature is 7.3C.

Geology Gravelly loam soils prevalent up and down Dry Creek Valley.

Harvest Hand-harvested/manual

Vinification 100% hand punch-down fermentation in small (6- to 9-ton) open-top fermentors. Maceration time varied from 8 to 12 days.Completed alcoholic fermentation in barrel before undergoing malolactic fermentation.

Aging Aged 11 months in 75% French oak (20% new) and 25% seasoned American oak barrels.

Acidity 5.74

PH 3.7

Residual sugar 1.22
