biodynamically farmed. The nose shows a light floral tone with some butterscotch and a light citrus tone. The palate is pretty with a touch of fruit and a moderate minus acid tone. D&M Tasting Notes
Growing grapes and making wine is poco a poco, little by little. When a block of vines takes an extra few years to grow up the stake, it’s poco a poco. When each cluster of grapes is sorted by hand, it’s poco a poco. When the wine in barrel takes a month or two longer to finish fermentation, it’s poco a poco. We live in a time when most things can be made, ordered, and consumed in a matter of days. The beauty of winegrowing is that we must live poco a poco.
Luke Bass launched his career as a winemaker long before taking his first paid job. A childhood spent in the vineyard imbued him with a natural understanding of grape growing and wine making. Since then he has worked in prestigious wineries around the world.
After earning a degree in economics from U.C. Santa Cruz, Luke embarked on a winemaking internship at Flowers Winery. There, under the guidence of winemaker Greg LaFollette, his harvest internship evolved into an intensive two and a half year experience as cellar master, giving him the chance to work with some of California's best Pinot Noir and Chardonnay.
