Wine Profile
Vineyard Notes
The Poetry Vineyard, carved into a steep west-facing hillside, reaches from the highest elevations of the Stags Leap District appellation to the valley floor. This vineyard draws its uniqueness from shallow soils atop fractured shale. Due to the stressful nature of the site, the small vines develop slowly and yield small flavorful berries.
Production Notes
Grapes were picked into small bins in the cool darkness of early morning and immediately subjected to rigorous selection by our three-tiered hand sorting process. The fruit was gently gravity-delivered to tank and wooden cuves by our unique crane system, which kept a high percentage of whole berries intact. Cold soaks lasted approximately five to eight days and fermentations were managed through a combination of pumpovers and délestage. Extended maceration of up to five weeks ensured exceptional extraction and fine-tuning of tannin profiles. Finally, the blend underwent twenty four months élevage in new French oak.
Winemaker Notes
Rich, dark crimson color delights the eyes, as aromas of cassis and black cherry greet the senses. Floral notes of violet and rose blossoms reveal themselves along with sage, dried tobacco, and forest notes. On the palate, dark red cherry and plum flavors are accented with the minerality of crushed rocks and gravel, and complemented by plush and silky tannins that make for a voluptuous and elegant wine.
