Carmel Valley, Estate Grown. From a single site high above Carmel, this shows a lighter and brighter touch of red fruits with raspberry, light cherry, cola and a hit of minerality. The palate is light bodied with moderate acid, and a flavor set of light raspberry, cola, a hint of minerality and loamy earth with a bing cherry to finish. D&M Tasting Notes
In the 1930s, famed engineer and pilot William Hawley Bowlus, whose pioneering sailplanes are in the Smithsonian, used to fly gliders off the ridges of Monterey’s majestic Carmel Coast. Eight decades later, his grandson and great-grandson unknowingly came to the same mountain slopes and established one of California’s most exciting vineyards. Perched seven miles from the Pacific Ocean, Albatross Ridge is an extraordinary site. Albatross Ridge exists on the very edge of what’s possible in cool-climate-viticulture, producing Chardonnay and Pinot Noir of uncommon beauty and grace.
Aromas of violets, forest floor, clove, cranberry and strawberry with a hint of toasted walnuts. Vibrant flavors of tart strawberry, cherry, cranberry and red apple are balanced with brimming acidity and a long mineral finish. Winery Notes
