Tasting notes

When we tasted this wine as a group, our main man in the cellar Luciano proclaimed it to be his "New mascot.” It is just insanely pretty, fresh turned soil, aromatically playful with plum, violets, and black pepper. In the mouth, it is slightly simpler but no less pleasing. Clay, cocoa, and cinnamon dominate as the finish goes on and on.

Production

Viticulture

Our first release with these grapes, the Powicana vineyard is farmed biodynamically in volcanic soils in a vineyard sitting just above Lake Mendocino in Mendocino County. The vines are approximately 30 years old and tended with exceptional care and love by a French family.

Vinification

The grapes were carefully sorted and place in concrete vats without destemming or sulfur. Fermentation occurred naturally after a few days, and we punched down a few times a day with one délestage towards the beginning of the ferment. After pressing, the wine was settled and moved to barrel for malolactic fermentation. The wine was bottled 10 months after being picked with the only sulfur
addition occurring just before.
