Winemaker Notes

2018 was a genuinely ideal growing season in Chalone. Temperatures were cool and steady throughout the year, and there was very little rain. We did not experience any heat spikes and succeeded in bringing in a gorgeous crop of fruit on August 31st. Sugars were low, berries were tiny, and flavors were fantastic. The wine was fermented 50% whole-cluster and spent 18 months in seasoned French Oak barrels. Small amounts of grenache and viognier were added to the finished product, to help brighten the wine up and give it a more traditional and feminine profile. The end-result is a deep, full-bodied wine with a truly complex floral nose full of cracked pepper, violets, and crushed blueberries that evolves as you give it time in your glass. On the palate the wine is rich but light on its feet. It doesn't feel heavy or dense but offers a long memorable finish full of rich berries and just the right amount of spice. An age-worthy wine that shows best with time in the decanter, but can be enjoyed right out of the bottle.
