As always, this bottling is a vintage selection of our absolute favorite barrels. This year’s six-barrel blend is comprised of two vineyards; our own Buttonfield and the neighboring Trout Lily Ranch. The 2 clones are 777 and Pommard. A stunning match of these sites and 18 months in barrel has given this wine great structure for the cellar. The deep garnet hue has indigo tones leading to the black plum and strawberry preserves notes in the nose. The approach is smooth and layered with spice and bright acidity. The finish is rich with fine tannins that make the flavors linger. This wine is drinking beautifully now, and will easily age for fifteen plus years.
