Winemaker's Notes

The 2001 vintage was characterized by an early spring with premature heat spikes. Temperatures in July normalized; however, the vines still experienced an early bloom. August cooled, ensuring cold nights and aromatic ripening, and small amounts of rain in September created an incentive for additional hang time.

Raspberries, strawberries and cherries, balanced by roasted walnuts and thyme.

Aroma
Fresh strawberries, and touches of roses, violets and tulips, balanced with roasted walnuts, thyme and caramel.
