Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
A fruit-driven nose of ripe raspberries, blueberries and cassis with underpinnings of mushrooms and truffles promote a bolder wine profile. The palate is layered with fresh fruits and finishes with a soy and ginger note.
Vineyard Notes
This vineyard sits on the northeast side of Russian River Valley bordering the Chalk Hill AVA. The steep terraced-style vineyard is planted to the Alban clone on Spreckels loam with only 60 inches of soil on top of bedrock.
Winemaker Notes
The vineyard was harvested in late August and fruit was fermented in small half-ton batches to maximize the skin-to-juice ratio, accentuating the characteristics of the vineyard. The juice was on the skins for 12 days during fermentation prior to being pressed off to tank to begin malolactic fermentation. The wine was racked to 100% French oak barrels before aging for 14 months and bottling unfiltered and unfined.
Food Pairing Notes
A perfect pairing for pastas with red sauce, parmesan truffle fries, and ahi tuna poke or other Asian cuisine.
