Shale Terrace, 1999

$ 44.00

Within the Scherrer Vineyard there are several different soils. One vineyard site, the “Shale Terrace,” is located on a relatively deep, well-drained, fractured shale subsoil. It yields wines with an uncommon blend of richness and finesse. This wine was bottled without fining or filtration to capture the beauty and personality of this particular vineyard site.

Winemaker's Notes

While the yield from this small plot was more plentiful than in 1998 and 2000 (still not very much), we really do not have enough to offer here. If you missed out on this wine during the futures offering and must have it, please call so we can try to dig out a couple of bottles for you. Anyway, this wine really typifies the 1999 vintage for our Zinfandels: more material than usual.
