Description

Hand harvested at night, and fermented with native yeast and malolactic fermentations. Aged for 16 months in French oak; 20% new. This wine was bottled unfined and unfiltered. Exotic floral and smoky aromatics of violets, nutmeg, and bacon draw you in, but it’s the rich entry on the peppery and precise palate that’s a showcase of this vineyard. They complement the tightly wound but very long finish.
