Vintage 2017 was a low crop year for our Estate vineyard with a production of less than half previous vintages. Intense red in color with aromas of earthy loam, dried cherry, espresso, and red plum. The aromas are balanced by flavors of ripe plum, orange zest, and rose hips. A long lush finish and smooth palate feel will stay with this wine for many years to come!
