2020 Courtship 6x750ml
Vintage Notes: The 2020 season commenced with a mild, sunny winter, allowing for timely budbreak, while berry set and canopy growth hit benchmarks by mid-June. We were encouraged by healthy yields of small berries, typical of our mountain site. In pursuit of complexity and balance, our first pick day landed relatively early, on September 14th, and a harvest of beautiful fruit unfolded over the next two weeks. Our final harvest was September 25th. On September 28th, the Glass Fire reached our region, ending the season.
Blend: 61% Cabernet Sauvignon, 21% Merlot, 18% Malbec
Tasting Notes: 2020 Courtship is an exuberant, expressive wine, carrying the lift and freshness that has become Courtship's signature. This intricate blend offers enticing mountain duality–pure fruit in harmony with lovely herbal, floral notes. Fresh wild berries, juicy pomegranate, nutmeg, sage, and black olive are layered within this irresistible wine that shares the playful side of the Cornell estate.
