The 2014 vintage was third in a string of incredible vintages. Another steady growing season gave us great raw materials for this wine. This multi-vineyard blend brings bright acidity, medium richness & lower alcohol to the table. It is a blend of Battaglini Vineyard, Keefer Ranch, and a touch the legendary Heintz Vineyard, and it is aged in 20% new French oak barriques.
Our pitch on this wine is that it is our ode to Chablis: crisp, nervy and refreshing. We embrace the sunshine and warmth of the Russian River Valley, but try to keep the ripeness in check.
On the nose, wet stones, lemon and a pear. The tannins are chalky, giving the wine structure, tension and length. Perfect for the dinner table. This wine has the structure to age at least 5 years, but is truly delicious right now.
