Tasting Notes
Dried herbs give this wine a wonderful savory entry alongside the strawberry and Blackberry fruit components. There are many layers to this wine with a great long lingering finish. Elements of green peppercorns, pine needles, menthol and rosemary keep the wine light and bright, whilst the fruit elements show the power and depth in the wine.
Vineyard Notes
In 2017 we were excited to begin working with this outstanding vineyard located high up in the hills along Westside Road in the Russian River Valley. A beautiful, secluded vineyard on the north end of the AVA, it is in a sweet spot where there is a cooling fog influence after the heat of the day. The unique microclimate, red soil and the hilly terrain accentuate good drainage which helps produce wines with beautiful intensity.
Winemaker Notes
The vineyard was harvested on September 26 and the juice was on skins for a total of 16 days. The must was then pressed to tank where malolactic fermentation began. The tank was racked to 100% neutral French oak barrels and aged for 16 months before bottling unfiltered and unfined in March 2020.
Food Pairing Notes
Pork and veal and red sauce pastas. Ratatouille would also be fantastic as a main or side to any and all of the proteins.
