Winemaker Notes: What has not changed is the use of older vine material which gives this wine the added benefit of mature vines producing fruit of incredible nuance and subtlety as well as the signature red fruit and texture of the AVA. 15% of the wine comes from the 1973 planting at Durant Vineyard, 25% from the 1983 planting at Weber, 50% from Balcombe and Mysterious Vineyards both of which were planted in 1990 and just 10% from a 19 year old section of Dijon 115 at Durant Vineyard. In most cellars these barrels would be dedicated to a small, single vineyard bottling. Because of our relationship with these growers we have enough fruit to do both the single vineyard or single block bottling and show a wine that is blended to, yes, be delicious but also to both make a statement about what all our Dundee Hill wines have at their root and soul (and we produced six other Dundee Hills wines as well as two other wines in different AVAs likewise planted in Jory soil) and to contrast that experience against our Marine Sedimentary bottling which makes up the other part of our cellar. This wine is sourced from 20 barrels 18 of which were neutral so what comes forth is pure Dundee Hills goodness. Red fruits and spices combine on an incredible textural lattice making this wine incredibly easy to get your head and palate around. Come for the geology, stay for the incredible taste."
