With a warm, southwest exposure and deep red, iron-rich soils, our 84-acre Edcora Vineyard provides a powerful backbone to our Estate. This prominent vineyard expresses itself in opulent mountain flavors framed by a strong, age-worthy structure.
The 2015 vintage opens with a bouquet of violets, dark espresso, sweet hay, and the eucalyptus trees that dot the hillsides around the Estate. On the palate, we find aromas and flavors of black cherries, bramble berries, Mission figs, Campari, mint chocolate, oranges, and mountain blueberries. The firm structure and mouth-coating tannins display the warm, sun-drenched exposure of the vineyard and combine with a rich freshness and aromas of Valrhona cocoa powder, tobacco, saddle leather, and basalt that continue to evolve through the long, and well-framed finish.
With all the power and structure found in the 2015 PEAK Edcora Vineyard, we feel this vintage will continue to develop and add an elegant bottle bouquet over the next 15 to 20+ years in your cellar.
