The 2015 vintage kicked off with a warmer than average spring combined with minimal
precipitation, leading to early bud break and flowering. The rest of the growing season followed
suit with record breaking temperatures. Canopy management was key for Painted Rock in 2015.
While harvest happened significantly earlier than normal though out the valley due to spiking
sugar levels, we were able to forestall ripening long enough to ensure our phenolic ripeness
(tannin) would have time to develop and be in balance with our sugar levels. "
Aged 18 months in 30% new French oak.
