We could not have asked for better conditions for the 2016 growing season. The weather was temperate with only 8 days above 100 degrees Fahrenheit, and the fruit quality was impeccable. We started picking in late July and finished the last week of October, just before heavy rains hit. With so many ideal factors coming together at the peak of harvest, 2016 is a vintage to look out for!
The 2016 7 Deadly Red is a sinner’s delight. A deep ruby color with tempting aromas of cranberry, ripe cherry, leather and a whiff of BBQ smoke. The seduction continues with flavors of blackberry, smashed plum and notes of black pepper which lead to a lingering, jammy finish with a kiss of spice.
