Pale salmon in color, the wine exudes aromas of raspberry and pink grapefruit. Framed by minerality, the soft and sweet fruit on the palate gives way to nectarine skin, peach pit, and apricot, and a long clean finish.

Vineyard Notes
The 2018 vintage was a return of cooler weather (such as 2010 & 2011). Another winter with rain was helpful in supplying the soil and plants with water. Spring was cooler than normal, but no significant frost events. With the cool spring, budbreak was delayed by 2-3 weeks. No extreme weather during set, which helped with good set and good yields. Summer was warm and promoted ripeness, but late summer and early fall were much cooler than past vintages and pushed harvest well into November. Despite the long drawn out harvest, crop levels were ample and fruit matured with excellent flavors and plenty of acid.
Production Notes
Whole cluster pressed and settled overnight. Chilled to 55 degrees and then fermented and aged in stainless steel and neutral oak. Malolactic fermentation was inhibited to keep the freshness of the wine intact.
