*1.5 Liters. This comes from the Barsotti Vineyard in El Dorado County which has high elevation and granite soils. It was fermented carbonic and whole cluster that gives it a decided pop, even at this early stage. The nose shows strawberry, rose petal, bing cherry, fresh soil, and a hit of spice. The palate is light and lively with bing cherry, minerals and spice. This is a lovely delicious California Gamay. D&M Tasting Notes
Grown at high elevation in the beautiful red granitic soils of the Sierra Foothills. Picked in two separate passes, one early and one a bit later makes for a wine a bit riper and fleshed out than in years passed.
The clusters are left whole and started by carbonic maceration, which lends its distinctive high tone appeal, then eventually crushed by foot and finished whole cluster for skin contact and extraction. Pressed to neutral barrique for a short 6 month elevage and bottled young to preserve delicate aromatics.
Light, fresh and utterly charming. Wild strawberry and summer herbs with cranberry tartness. Winery Notes
