Timbervine vineyard is named for the dense, mixed forest surrounding the dangerously steep mountain that the vineyard sits upon. Like this forest, the wine is a dense mixture of aromatic species — mostly the thick, dark, brooding type. It’s best consumed alongside fare found therein: Wild game and mushrooms.
This wine represents the labor of three generations of the Scherrer family — most of the vines that produced this wine were planted in 1912. It was bottled without fining or filtration to capture the beauty and personality of the Scherrer Vineyard. Although enjoyable in its youth, it should age and develop gracefully for 5 to 10 years after the vintage.
