Winemaker Notes:

While the yields were low in the 2015 vintage, the quality was high. The growing period began with uncommonly warm temperatures in the late winter and early spring which resulted in an early bud break and bloom. Alpha Omega started and completed harvest the earliest in its history. The beauty of this vintage is that a limited number of 100+-degree days bolstered the concentration and power of our fruit. The vintage left us with a round, voluptuous profile, which we complemented by extracting plenty of tannin to support it. The results are very complex and full-bodied wines.
