A note from the winemaker
I cannot wait for you to try these new 2017 wines! Every vintage Mother Nature throws us a few curve balls during harvest — and she threw us a lot in 2017 — but I don’t think we’ve ever been more prepared to handle the challenges of a Harvest. After-all, between Aron and I, we have 28 years of experience working with this vineyard, and we’ve seen a thing or two over that time together!
The most notable challenge we faced in 2017 was a record breaking heat spike over Labor Day weekend. Instead of panicking and picking the under-ripe fruit, we waited until after the heat broke and the vines had recovered. Sure, we lost a little fruit to desiccation that required heaving sorting in the winery, but we were rewarded with the most perfectly ripe grapes. The resulting wines are incredibly generous — offering beautiful aromatics driven by floral notes, and gorgeous textures that are silky smooth, but never over-the-top.
I’m always a little nervous releasing a new vintage after such a strong one the year before. I mean, the 2016’s were pretty fantastic (95 & 96 point scores from Wine Spectator, plus selling out almost immediately after release). So to calm my nerves we decided to blind taste the 2017s, 2016s, and 2015s against each other. When all the votes were tallied, the 2017s came out on top and some all-time favorites were reassigned. Fantastically cellar-able, you’ll want to stock up on 2017s while they’re available — so you can enjoy some now and many years down the road.
One other fun addition to this Fall release is the 2017 Sacred Burro. Most vintages we make such a small amount of this wine we can’t offer it as part of a wine club release. However, this year, we had a new vineyard block come into production and have just enough to offer you a few bottles. Please note that it is not included in all of the standard packages, so if you’d like some, be sure to add it to your customized selection.
