2016 WEIR VINEYARD Yorkville Highlands

Description

The Vineyard
The Weir Vineyard Yorkville Highlands is located on a south facing hillside of rocky gravely soils at an elevation that ranges between 850 and 1000 feet. Cool ocean air funnels up the Anderson Valley to regulate the ripening of the exceptional fruit from this vineyard.

Winemaker Notes
One word to describe this beautiful wine: WOW!  This complex wine possesses aromas of cherry cola, black cherry, espresso, Herbs de Provence, and rose blossoms.  Seamless mid-weight flavors of cola, cocoa nib, and ripe red fruits coat the palette.   Like the 2015 wine, the concentration of flavors and integration of tannin of this youthful wine truly speak for the quality of the 2016 vintage.  Fans will enjoy this wine over the next 10+ years.
