Vineyard Notes
The 2022 growing season proved itself challenging with the lack of rainfall and above average growing temperatures. We made each farming through the lens of maintaining vine stamina for the big push at the tail end of the growing season. We also did less leaf plucking to encourage a greater degree of dappled sunlight impacting the grapes via less leaf plucking, preserving freshness and detail in the grapes. Our experience growing on the ridgelines of Rockpile continues to prove to us that mother nature delivers weather events there that magnify the valley floor experiences, so having a keen eye for detail and a devotion for preparation helps us to buffer any extremes.
Winemaker Notes
This multi-layered Bordeaux blend walks a fine line between the expected ripeness of a dry, warm growing season and the freshness that is the hallmark of our wines. Intriguing aromas of red cassis, licorice, cured meats, dried lavender, cigar wrapper and shavings of dark cacao are prominent. While it’s generous on the palate, both in its fruit layers and richness, this wine ultimately represents a rare glimpse into the softer side of Rockpile, and should be cherished over the next 2 to 12 years.
