Food Pairing Notes

This is a wine to be savored with hearty fare, like a grilled rib-eye accompanied by an arugula and mushroom salad with a truffle vinaigrette.

Production Notes

The 2017 growing season began with ample rainfall, followed by a moderate Spring, resulting in extended flowering with minimal shatter. Harvest began with a Labor Day weekend heatwave, then cool weather alowed sugar levels to return to normal. The vines responded with full, healthy canopies for the long growing season.
