Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
Aromas of toasted vanilla, oak and ripe pear combine with layers of honey crisp apple. In the mouth, this elegant wine exhibits flavors of fresh pear, baked lemon tart, crisp apple and papaya. Bright acidity is well balanced with the French oak on the palate. The 2013 vintage is very refined with acidity and fruit notes that result in a long seamless finish.
Ratings
91 POINTS Wine Enthusiast. There's an exotic saltiness and briny ocean element to this memorable wine, grandly textured and integrated in terms of oak. Medium in weight, it finds balance between savory, spicy and salty tones and a crispness of Gravenstein apple.
Vineyard Notes
The 2014 vintage in the Russian River Valley was another exceptional year, a near twin to the acclaimed 2013 vintage. Optimal conditions with consistently moderate weather yielded balanced chemistry in the grapes and a bountiful crop.
Winemaker Notes
Hand-picked fruit from the 30-year-old Jewell Vineyard was barrel-fermented with native yeasts followed by 100% malolactic fermentation. The wine was aged for 14 months in French oak.
