Vineyard Notes

Kairos is a stretch of well-drained benchland at the northern edge of the Chimney Rock estate, with shallow hard pan and gravel and loam soils that easily stress the vines. Thanks to decades of working with this exact plot of land, our vineyard and winemaking team is intimately aware of what efforts and techniques best harmonize with this unique location. The results are low yields and remarkably small berries, which produce a distinctive, nearly purple wine that is both intense, lushly textured and emphatically Kairos.

Production Notes

In 2009, we were blessed with another dry spring, and beautiful temperate weather throughout the growing season. The few late rains had little effect on our intensely flavored and elaborately ripe, yet balanced, fruit.
