Ready for harvest in 2018.

Early wines have been very complex with lots of spice, attractive earthy aromas and jammy fruit. Substantial tannins for a fully hardy grape and a long finish. This may be an excellent blending component to add complexity and softness to most northern red wines. Can also stand on its own. infer as we can get in our terroir.”
