A really neat illustration of the transition of some of our production into a super small lot reserve program. The Spring of 2020 will see the release of the first of our MAGIC Series, a limited production/4 barrel reserve. Over time we have realized that there is a confluence of optimum situations, from the plant, to exposure, to the nuances of yeast activity and barrel response that ultimately produce something magical. Beginning with the 2018 harvest we produced 4 barrels one section of the Sideshow Hill VY that produced a consistently luscious pineapple dominant fruit. Taking this production from the blend, we placed it in new french oak from the Boutes Cooperage and will leave it there for prolonged oak aging. As a result when you contrast the 2017 vintage to the 2018, you see a pronounced difference in both aromatic and flavor profile. No ML in either 2017 or 2018 vintages ... acid balanced out the barrel tannin perfectly.
