Full-bodied. Concentrated. Opulent. These are some of the descriptors we often hear applied to our wines. However, we also hear the words elegant, balanced, complex. Yes, through hard work in the vineyard and winery, we believe you can have it all, the best of both worlds. Our approach to winemaking is simple, yet difficult. We prefer to intervene in nature’s process as little as possible. We often rely on uninoculated fermentations and use minimal new oak. We rarely fine or filter. However, we are not dogmatic and will intervene if we feel it results in a higher quality wine while still remaining true to the vineyard.

2004 Vintage

Record heat in the first half of March lead to an early bud break and an early vintage. Other than a six day heat wave in September, growing season was relatively easy and problem free. A very "Carlilian" vintage with wines possessing gorgeous aromatics and lush, balanced textures.
