Rootdown 2019 James Vineyard Sangiovese

Jane tends an organic 2 acre hobby vineyard outside of Hopland. This needs a bit of glass to open up, and does so with quite pretty yet present tar, spice, dried cherry, earth, and some cooking herbs. The palate is moderate in weight with great acid and flavors of dried cherry, tarragon, and baked earth. D&M Tasting Notes

The Rootdown label refers to the grassroots of winemaking and the downward influence of the soil on wine, particularly in organic winemaking. Rootdown focuses on varietal specific wines from single vineyards that lead with earth and texture, rather than only fruit.

Vineyard: Who is Jane? A retired vineyard hobbyist who spends her time nursing this organic “project”, a 2-acre vineyard emphasizing biodiversity near the base of Duncan Peak in Hopland. The site sits atop Talmage soils, known for very deep, somewhat excessively drained soils formed in alluvium from mixed sources.

Consistent with the previous vintage (one of the reasons I love this site) - clean, bright, lively cherry, cranberry and strawberry with fresh resinous herbs — think thyme and lavender— on the nose with a lean, super pretty finish. Sexy time! Winery Notes
