After five vintages spent exploring three sites on the Valley floor, we felt it was our duty to expose a different perspective to our debaters. The area we moved to is as diverse, complex and distinctive as the Valley floor, with dramatically different profiles that we are sure you will enjoy. Mountain and hillside profiles, due to their topography and water circulation, give vines with smaller berries, and therefore, wines with more concentration. Each of these vineyards is distinctly different even though they are mere miles apart moving north along the eastern hills of the Vaca Mountain Range. Crafted by Jean Hoefliger using the same winemaking techniques, these three wines show the true diversity of terroir and the art of interpretation.
Black licorice, ripe red cherry and dustings of graphite and clove contribute to this mighty, 100% varietal wine from the famous site. Concentrated power gives way to a streak of crushed rock minerality and hints of tobacco and cacao. Enjoy best 2024–2029. VIRGINIE BOONE
