Two things have always stood out for me about this vineyard- the consistently low yields, and the consistent flavor profile. I attribute both to the soils (a very unique mix of gravel laden clay/loam soils which are very well drained, and the cold site. 2013 brought us a larger crop than we’ve ever had from this vineyard, which is to say about what might be “average” 3 tons to the acre) but with the unmistakable flavor profile of this place.

But what really stands out is how full and juicy it is- with an undeniable weight that is manifest, while managing to stay on this side of “ponderous”. I’ve always loved the strawberries in this place, along with a sassafras note and good spice components. There is even a touch of “forest floor” from the Pommard clone. But more than anything, I just like the certainty of the voice of this wine- a confidence about it. While still very young, it is really going places. Deacanting recommended. Drink now until 2025.
