Vintage and Vineyards

This year’s 2012 vintage is being described as “excellent,” “outstanding” and “ideal” by many, as the wine grape harvest accross California yielded generous amounts of high quality fruit.  In our vineyards, textbook conditions saw near-ideal spring bud break, steady flowering, even fruit set, and a lengthy stretch of warm days and cool and often foggy nights during the long summer months. Late and light rains held off until our treasured wine grapes found optimal ripeness, bringing exceptional quality to the crush pad and into the cellar.

 

Tasting Notes

Ready to be enjoyed immediately, the 2012 Secret Red Blend offers enticing aromas of ripe red strawberries and cherry and notes of rhubarb and mocha  that open to delightful hints of plums and blueberries.

On the palate jammy red raspberries, strawberries lead to a silky and soft finish of lingering candied fruits.
