Vintage Notes


Made in very small quantities for the spring and summer seasons ahead, this wine by winemaker Tres Goetting is made from a base of Sangiovese grapes and blended with a small amount of Zinfandel for added complexity and structure.

 

This is a wonderful dry wine to keep on hand, chilled, for whenever the moment strikes you: with antipasti, picnic lunches, light meals of fish or fowl, the classic salade Niçoise or simply sometimes as the refreshing reset button after a long day.

Tasting Notes


Vibrant bubblegum color with aromas of guava, watermelon jolly rancher, cherry blossoms, key lime, Bartlett pear, saline, chalk dust, fresh herb such as thyme and rosemary. There is a pleasing saliva-inducing tartness, and a savory gentle touch of red wine tannins.

Optimum serving temperature: 46° F – 58° F.

Vintage Notes


The 2017 season brought a warm, dry spring with early bud break, helping canopy vigor and berry size and created ideal conditions for flowering and fruit set under sunny skies. With the exception of one heat spike in late June/early July, temperatures were consistently in the zone for optimal vine activity, resulting in notably healthy vines as fruit went through veraison. Ideal conditions continued through ripening which allowed for long and steady “hang time” which resulted in concentrated flavors, balanced acidity and tame tannins at harvest time. 

Tasting Notes


Ruby red and garnet in color with complex layers of spicy aromatics which lead to notes of red apple, rhubarb, cinnamon, cherry cola, red licorice and white cake. A soft and billowy entry lends way to flavors of strawberries, raspberries and black cherry. Full bodied with a plush building texture and a long mouthwatering finish. This dry Pinot Noir is unfiltered and unfined.
