Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
Ripe strawberries, baking spices, toasted vanilla, and sour cherries on the nose. The palate also carries flavours of red fruits, toasted vanilla, and hints of spice and cloves. The tannins are soft and supple with lively acidity and a medium finish.
Vineyard Notes
An unusually cool Fall slowed down berry development, but the stony soil of Dark Horse Vineyard was able to retain a bit more heat than other sandier soils in the valley. The cooler temperatures were very kind to our Cabernet Franc and Pinot Noir as they both display typical varietal character and are very fruit forward. Chardonnay was another standout varietal as it has developed both rich fl avours and structure. Overall, we expect it to be an above average vintage for Darkhorse.
Winemaker Notes
The grapes were picked at peak ripeness and gently crushed and destemmed. The grapes were then cold soaked in an open top fermenter for 4 days before the start of fermentation. The fermentation lasted 10 days and the wine was punched down twice daily for the duration. The wine was then pressed off and transferred to specially selected French and American Oak barrels to go through secondary fermentation. The wine was then aged in these same barrels for 8 months.
