2016 Midnight Reserve

2016 Midnight Reserve

Although still young, our 2016 Midnight Reserve has intense aromas of dark berries that come together with cocoa and toasty oak, with well-defined flavors of preserved cherry and soft spice notes. This classic Bordeaux blend is framed by solid tannins with a rich feel on the palate.

51% Cabernet Sauvignon, 35% Petit Verdot, 9% Cabernet Franc and 5% Merlot

Vineyard Notes
By knowing the strengths of each vineyard we distinguish which blocks are ideal for Midnight Reserve. The 2016 vintage is from three of our vineyards: Cabernet Sauvignon | Railroad | Jahant Appellation, Petit Verdot | River Ranch | Jahant Appellation, Merlot and Cabernet Franc | Miller | Clarksburg Appellation
Production Notes
With above average winter rains, we began the 2016 growing season with enough moisture in the soil profile to delay the start of irrigation. This allowed the vines to grow at their own pace until the crucial time when we began spoon feeding water to control vigor. Warm daytime temperatures and cool nights resulted in all varietals ripening quickly in the first half of the season, but as we came closer to fall, the late ripening varietals took their time reaching maturity. What developed was a long harvest, beginning at the end of July and lasting until the end of October, just before the first major fall rainstorm; lucky for us 99% of our vineyards were harvested.  The outcome is a season with average to above-average yields and winemakers please with the quality.
