In this cool, mountainous region, each
season presents its own grape-growing
challenges. Our goal, as farmer and
vintner, is to fine-tune the vineyard so
the grapes will ripen before the first
storms. We anticipated an early harvest
this year; that changed abruptly when
cold weather stalled the vines. We
picked in late September. After wholecluster
pressing, the juice was racked to
barrel for natural primary fermentation.
Lees were stirred weekly through April,
maintaining freshness and adding texture.
We blind-tasted the lots, choosing

it settled for five months and was bottled
without filtration. The wine shows
complex fruit, firm acidity, and mineral
elements. It will be at its best over the
next five to seven years.
