A sultry, deep ruby glows in the glass with our latest MC². This is a richer, yet more smooth and silky vintage than we’ve offered in a while. On the nose, the first impression is of a deep and mouthwatering bittersweet cocoa, followed by gentle notes of oak, cedar and autumn leaves. A combination of red and black fruit and berries woos the palate; red and black raspberries and currants, dark plums and all braced with just a hint of graphite and finishing with a lingering splash of fresh-picked, sun-drenched blueberries. We’re extremely smitten with this wine and are certain you will be too!

Growing Conditions

Winter of 2018-19 was pretty mild, resulting in little to no bud damage and setting us up for a good year of growing to come. 2019 started with a pretty “by the books” finger lakes spring, with an on-time start to the growing season; no late frosts to hassle us and a reasonable amount of rainfall. The growing season was warm but not hot, with moderate rain which tapering off by the fall to a nice mild harvest season. The weather cooperated well and allowed the vines to achieve full ripeness and flavor development. Overall, a solid growing season finished with a nice easy, harvest.
