Following the very small 2015 harvest, it was heartening to see the vines recover and bounce back to produce not only extremely high quality fruit but also some bounty in 2016! Harvest was earlier than we expected, and we observed optimum flavor and phenolic development progress as we harvested. Across the board, the flavors and acids were exceptional, and a delicious balance evolved as the harvest proceeded. Acids are firm and pH is slightly lower, so the wines should be well-structured with very good aging potential. This is an exciting vintage with a lot to like! —Brooks Painter, Director of Winemaking

It is with this inspiration that our winemaking team has selected several of our most impressive Castello di Amorosa Pinot Noir barrels to create the "Il Rubino" blend, a truly exceptional and distinctive wine.
