Brilliant gold in color with well-integrated and complex aromas of tropical fruit, peach, dried apricot, honey, and a light floral character balance by hints of coconut, vanilla, and toasted notes. Round palate with a full mouthfeel, excellent structure and balance.

Growing Conditions

2010 began with a relatively mild winter and lower than usual precipitation. Bud-break occurred one to two weeks early across the region, allowing for a positive start to what turned about to be a fantastic year. Warmer than average temperatures endured throughout the spring and promoted great growth without being too hot to shut down the vines. Hot conditions prevailed throughout the summer with occasional bursts of high rainfall. Veraison was approximately one week early in some varietals. Diligent leaf removal and fruit-thinning throughout the vineyard, combined with these ideal growing conditions, allowed for highly concentrated, healthy fruit and a slightly earlier harvest. Following the heat of summer, temperatures swung unusually low in the late fall and the grapes for our Icewine Red were harvested on December 14.
