Winemakers Notes

This would be our third vintage of dessert wine from this vineyard. Cold fermented for over 168 days in 100% brand new French oak barrels. Enchanting aromas of Sun Crest peaches, lichee, rose water and spices dictate the nose in your glass. Ripe flavors of peaches and nectarine pie are accentuated by the mouth-watering acidity. The finish goes on forever and would complement fruit desserts.
—Winemaker Bob Cabral

Harvest Notes

Challenging weather during the 2003 growing season resulted in lighter than normal berry development. However lower yields, coupled with moderate temperatures, allowed for even ripening with good sugar, pH and acidity. Although Mother Nature provided us with a less than bountiful harvest, we are very pleased with the resulting wines. The grapes for this wine were harvested at an average of 25.4 Brix in late October.
