Despite a few challenges, 2008 was a strong vintage overall. A hard frost in the early spring, followed by a hail storm in May made for a tense start to the growing season, but warm days and cool nights through August, September, and October ensured a smooth harvest.
Hand harvesting and sorting allowed for only the best grapes from our vineyards to be included in the wine. After a period of maceration, the wine was aged for 22 months in a combination of both new and neutral French oak barrels.
Food Pairing Notes
As with all aged red wines, you’ll want to take care when serving so as to not disturb the wine’s natural sediment deposit. Careful decanting is an option. Enjoy with red meat, or grilled vegetables.
