Winemaking Notes

The 2015 Symmetry has luxurious aromas of red fruit, plum, vanilla, dusty oak and dried fruit which unfold on the palate with silky layers of dark fruits, baking spices, and a supple, rich mouthfeel. This wine is harmonious and elegant with refined tannins and a long, lingering finish. Enjoy this wine now with beef stew, grilled pork tenderloin or an assortment of roasted vegetables, or cellar for enjoyment for years to come.

Vineyard Notes
The 2015 vintage was warm overall, but cooler than the previous few years. Budbreak was very early, weeks ahead of average. Yields were very low—in some blocks half of what we’d normally harvest. The low yields led to sugars accumulating much faster in the clusters than the speed at which ripening was occurring. Cool and hot weather alternated the rest of the summer. The acidity and tannins in the berries remained firm as we were looking at the possibility of a record early harvest date, so we chose to let the sugars go, waited for the acids to lower and for the tannins to soften. Satisfied with the flavors, and with all things in balance, we picked blocks from five different vineyards in Alexander Valley, plus our Estate Cooley Ranch out in the wild hills north of Lake Sonoma, all the way through September, as the fruit from each block tasted best.
Production Notes
Our Symmetry Meritage is created in our small lot winemaking facility, the Artisan Cellar. Our winemaker Greg Morthole works closely with consulting winemaker David Ramey as we employ state-of-the-art techniques such as cluster pre-sorting, berry sorting and extended maceration. Only indigenous yeast and naturally occurring malolactic fermentation are allowed. With small tanks and equipment sized for the most discriminating vineyard selection process, this facility is truly state-of-the-art and represents the Klein family’s commitment towards producing the finest wines possible.
