Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
Notes of lemon tart, fresh pear and crème brûlée combine with a streak of minerality to reflect the sophistication and depth of the cool-climate Russian River Valley. The rich mouthfeel is complex and evolving, and its beautiful acidity contributes to a wine that is precisely balanced with nice aging potential. Cases Produced: 250
Vineyard Notes
The 2012 vintage in the Russian River Valley was widely acclaimed as one of the most ideal growing seasons during the last decade. Consistently moderate weather throughout the season yielded balanced chemistry in the grapes and a bountiful crop. The berries were surprisingly small, producing concentrated flavors and aromas.
Production 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 sur lie for 12 months in French oak.
