The 2016 growing season proved, once again, the importance of pruning. By adapting our pruning techniques to each micro-cru, after several years of drought, we worked in concert with Mother Nature to produce grapes that would result in elegant, age-worthy wines in the signature styles of La Muse, La Joie and Le Désir. While we experienced some heat spikes in July, the temperatures during the summer growing season were moderate with some cooler days in late August. This provided the ideal conditions for slower ripening, resulting in less sugar accumulation and producing good acidity in the grapes. The harvest took place within a two-week period across all four appellations. This was faster than normal, but necessary in order to preserve the natural acidity in the grapes and to prevent excess sugar, which are important for achieving balanced, elegant wines. We are very pleased with the 2016 vintage as its sophistication and finesse shine through. These wines will age extremely well for decades to come.

LA MUSE 2016 - Fragrant aromas of black plums, redcurrants, and dried citrus peel mingle with notes of leather, crème brûlée, and hints of vanilla bean. The flavors on the palate unveil layers of black fruit, toasted cedar, and cassis along with hints of melted dark chocolate, wild thyme, browned butter, and cinnamon. Marked by powdery yet firm tannins and bright acidity, the wine carries its structure with effortless grace. A stony minerality is revealed throughout the elegant, lengthy finish—a signature character of La Muse.

LA JOIE 2016 - Bold aromas of redcurrants, crunchy red plums, and fresh pomegranate combine with bright mint, fresh sage, and dried cloves. On the palate, dried blackcurrants and warm raspberry compote flavors show this wine’s Sonoma provenance. Savory notes are abundant and bright, with undertones of fresh pine needles, rhubarb, fresh bay leaf, and an earthy element of wet gravel. The muscular structure is marked by supple, refined tannins, strong acidity, and an elegant finish.
