Alcohol By Volume


Toasty brioche and apple fruit on the nose. Full and rich palate with citrus and ripe pear fruit. Clean and long finish showing minerality and balanced acidity. JO (5/22)
Twelve lots were picked separately and barrel fermented. Soon after fermentation, we identified one from the Rousten vineyard as Monte Bello for its intensity and mineral notes. The Lone Tree block from Perrone was later included to balance acidity. After aging for fifteen months in barrel, primarily in American oak, the wine is immediately appealing but will age beautifully over at least the next ten years. JO (4/21)
