Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
Marrying juicy fruit flavors with savory, succulent notes of olive and char, the 2015 Beatty Ranch is richly expressive of its hillside location. Bright plum and cassis aromas and a vibrant natural acidity harmonize with rich oak and plush, coating tannins to make this wine both lushly textured and elegantly structured for long-term aging.
Vineyard Notes
Located atop Howell Mountain, Beatty Ranch typically gets to enjoy the warmth of the sun when summer fog lines the valley floor. While the fruit ripens easily, we must wait for mature tannins to emerge. The red, rocky soils are ideal for producing moderate-sized vines, and this vineyard is comprised of four different clones that each provide a unique flavor profile to the overall wine.
