Review

The block sourced by this producer was planted in 1972 with Old Wente clone. The combination of site and winemaker is stunningly successful. The grainy, textured wine is nutty and boldly laced in crème brûlée richness. Integrated vanilla oak gives it additional density as supportive acidity freshens flavors of peach, olive and apple.
