Full of ripe berry and black cherry with soft tannins and hints of dark chocolate all in beautiful harmony!

Growing Conditions

The 2016 growing season was one of, if not the driest growing season on record for the Finger Lakes region. As of August we were very concerned about the condition of the vines and whether the fruit would be able to ripen due to lack of rain. Luckily, just as it looked the bleakest, we received several, much needed showers.


We were pleasantly surprised when we started harvesting the 2016 crop; yields were down due to small berry size, but the quality was outstanding.
