About this wine...Jeff fell in love with the complexity, elegance,
and nuance he found in this pair of older
vineyards, with vines from 70 to 100+ years old. Floral notes of violet and lilac on the nose are
brightened by pure fruit: dried cherry, strawberry preserve, candied plums, and raspberry. Fruit persists through the middle with lovely bright acidity. Barrel notes of
vanilla and sweet coffee roast provide a soft,
silky structure to this elegant wine. 500 cases produced
