SONOMA VALLEY | SONOMA COUNTY 

Tasting Notes: Bramble-berry and black cherries come to focus as the Primitivo's aromas carry the nose, readying for first sip. Sumptuous heady black currant and sweet spices are embedded throughout the palate. Fine-grained tannins welcome a vibrant backdrop of scidity, giving this wine the ability to be versatile when pairing. 

Vintage: During winter and spring we had record breaking rainfall - 75 inches. After the wet start the vines developed at rapid growth. We endured four heat waves before the berries fully changed color. We did not pull leaves around the fruit as we normally do, keeping the clusters shaded fom the intense summer heat. The vintage finished late with overall fruit forward wines with nice acidity. All of our white variteals, and roughly 90% off our red varietals, had been harvested before the October fires.
