Explosion of dark fruit, cassis and blueberries with touches of maple syrup and molasses lingering on chocolate.

Growing Conditions

"The saying of big things come in small packages is true when it comes to the 2015 vintage. While the yields were low, 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." -Jean Hoefliger

Harvest

"Alpha Omega started and completed harvest the earliest in its history." -Jean Hoefliger

Winemaking

"The beauty of this vintage is that a limited number of 100+-degree days bolstered the fruits’ concentration and power. 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 wines." -Jean Hoefliger

Appearance

Deep, shiny black cherry with touches of garnet on the rim.
