TASTING NOTES
Offering tremendous opulence, Ulysses 2015 marries lavender and sage in voluptuous layers of blond tobacco and blue plum. A wine
of great potential.

VINTAGE SUMMARY
2015 saw a wet winter (24.26”) with some particularly heavy rains in December. These rains replenished the soils’ water reserve. The very dry spring induced moderate shoot growth. Early May temperatures cooled down suddenly affecting the bloom which reduced the size and number of berries per cluster.

The growing season was consistently warm with one severe heat wave (106F) on August 16.

VINTAGE SUMMARY
2016 was characterized by a rainy and warmer than average winter.
With soil water reserves full, vines quickly grew dense and vigorous canopies. Bloom and veraison unfolded in warm and dry conditions. Ripening slowed down in August because of cooler temperatures and late morning fog.
Warm temperatures in September (99 F on 18th, 100 F on 25th, 100 F on 26th) helped fruit to ripen consistently.
