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.

2012 Vintage

About as perfect of a growing season as one could hope for. Abundant early spring rains replenished soil moisture after a below average rainfall winter. Ideal weather at bloom and set. No rainfall from early May until October 21st. In the end, outstanding quality and record setting quantity. Wines are deeply fruited with surprising structure.
