Tasting Notes

Bought in from a very cool, isolated vineyard. Planted about 25 years ago on its own roots. Two-thirds 115 and one-third Martini clone. To reach it, keep going north-west from Anderson Valley and it’s about 7 miles from the coast. Quite a popular grower. Picked 19 October. 70% whole cluster. Aged in neutral oak. Quite rich, spicy nose. Satin texture. Fresh and interesting. 2020-2027
