50% whole cluster fermentation with indigenous yeast. Aged in French neutral barrels for 10 months, blend the whole cluster and the destemmed lot just before bottling.
The resulting wine exhibits characteristics of the site, a coastal influence of a cool climate and a high elevation, with the complex aromas of pine forest, dried rose petals, rosemary, and a hint of cinnamon, raspberry, and lacy acidity in mid-palate. It finishes with silky tannin and savory mushroom characteristics.
