Amista 2015 Tres

Amista 2015 Tres


Take me to current releases

Always one of my favorite wines to make and drink, this vintage is no exception. On the nose are notes of all-spice, clove, cardamom and cassis with juicy but subtle huckleberry tones. The front palate is full of black cherry with a touch of black pepper and gives way to dusty, rich tannins and a silky finish.

Wine Profile
Vineyard Notes
2015 was a very dry year here in Sonoma County. Yields were down because the vines were stressed due to a shortage of water but flavors were concentrated with the smaller crop size.

Winemaker Notes
crushed Syrah & Grenache on 9/15; crushed Mourvedre on 9/22/2015; 19% Grenache, 31% Syrah, 50% Mourvedre; The grapes for our Tres blend were picked, fermented and aged separately. This year, all the blocks were picked within a few weeks of each other. We picked each vineyard by hand, sorted by hand, then de-stemmed and gently crushed each lot. Each of the varietals was fermented in a stainless steel open top tank, cold soaked for 3-5 days then inoculated and punched down 2-3 times per day. After fermentation, the wines were put to neutral oak barrels and aged for 18 months before being bottled unfined and unfiltered.
