This vintage is a 50/50 split of Dijon Clone 667 and 115 from the steepest hillside blocks that sit on Monterey formation rock bed. This site is naturally devigored and makes for concentrated, small clusters that achieve stem lignification early on. The grapes were fermented with 100% whole-cluster with light extraction during fermentation. The wine was pressed in our wooden basket press at dryness and aged for 10 months in neutral french oak barrels before being racked for the first time to bottle without filtration.
Think crushed raspberries, violets & dried roses with chalky tannin
