Vibrant, nuanced and delineated. The flavors are wonderfully alive in the glass, while the balance of fruit, acidity and tannin is superb. There is an additional dimension of brightness to the expressive cranberry and pomegranate flavors.
|Wine maker notes
|This vineyard, at 1400-1600 feet, is only a mile upthe road from Abbey-Harris and shares similar, though less rocky, soils. Our two blocks function like two vineyards: the terraced rows of the Wadenswil clone form one section, while the Pommard block sits on a shelf a bit lower down the slope. The afternoon winds, cool temperatures, and thirty-year-old vines create a wine of great depth and perfumed elegance. This vineyard is farmed by Anthony and Knez Winery.
