Vineyard

The block where Clone 828 is grown neighbors the blocks where 667 and 777 are grown. There is a small hill with southern exposure and the soils are haire clay loam, which drain well.

Tasting Notes

The aromas of this elegant wine hint at just-ripe plums, fresh fruit compote, baking spices and juniper berries. The palate exudes pomegranate and cassis flavors, accented by a subtle spiceiness.

Food and Wine Pairing

Grilled venison or pork loin with an herb pesto or mustard sauce would make a hearty companion to this wine, which could just as well be paired with a falafel, hummus and salty pita chips.
