2016 Thomas Fogarty 'Walker's Estate Grown' Nebbiolo Santa Cruz Mountains

$59.95

Stir up some trouble with an unusual varietal from an unexpectedly perfect location. Piedmontese darling, the finicky Nebbiolo, finds a happy home 2,150 feet up in the Santa Cruz Mountains. An exciting year with early warmth and late frosts threatening to wreak havoc only served to build more complexity and depth. The bouquet is classic, with dried strawberry and savory herbs, while the ample palate delivers juicy acidity, chewy tannins, and crushed-rock minerality around cranberry and pomegranate notes that linger.
