2017 Winemaker Signature

2016’s Winemaker Signature was truly amazing and thus I decided to keep the blend with the same varieties; Syrah, Cabernet Franc and Petite Sirah. The biggest difference being the two years is that this new 2017 bottling is primarily Cabernet Franc, followed by Syrah and Petite Sirah. 2017 Cabernet Franc was truly the standout from all my wines produced during the harvest. It’s the ripest Cabernet Franc I have ever produced! It demonstrates immense levels of tannins, adding to the structure and durability of the wine. I added Syrah because it too displayed amazing ripe flavors of plum and strawberry with the darkest color imaginable. Petite Sirah rounds out the finish and was taken from a new American Oak barrel, adding huge notes of sweet caramel candies, smoked wood and a lingering taste of chocolate cherries. Overall I feel this that the wine’s pallet is dominated by ripe dark fruit aromas and accented by woody bouquets. The structure is amazing with puckering acidity making it a candidate for long-term aging. It’s leans dark and tannic, ending with a plethora of fruity taste. It’s heavy bodied and this wine is intended to age for 15 or more years!
