The start of the 2020 growing season was dry with warmer than average temperatures. Heat and wind during flowering led to lower fruit set and subsequently lower yields at harvest. The temperatures became milder from late January, allowing the vines to recover and helping maintain acidity. Although crops were down considerably this vintage, the quality has been fantastic.
Nose: The nose offers subtle aromas of plums and dried herbs with a hint of spice in the background.
Palate: The palate is tasty and rich with plums and spice, complemented by elegant, smooth tannins and a tight, lingering finish.
