We first worked with this vineyard in 2006 and have focused on a portion of this complex 10-acre vineyard that suits our style perfectly. Only a portion of it is bottled separately as the rest of the barrels are absolutely needed to complete our Sonoma County and/or Russian River Valley bottlings. It has been a pleasure to work with Glen and Pam Gunsalus over these past 15 or so vintages.
A bit more dark-fruited than 2013-2015, this shows more depth, great texture and length. Candied-apple, plums, hibiscus tea and fresh aromas with high-toned perfume like ripe apple with a touch of freshly cut parsnip circle back to hibiscus tea and darker fruits of black cherry on the mouth with a nice, full body.
