2017 :Nota Bene Una Notte : Columbia Valley
How many times must you taste a wonderful wine before wanting to make one just like it? One night…was all it took for us to know we wanted to make a Southern Rhône style blend such as this. Probably our most fruit-forward wine of the vintage with strawberry and raspberry up front in the bouquet, soft, but with enough structure to give this wine length in a proper cellar. Special thanks to Tedd Wildman from StoneTree Vineyard for the major components of this blend and a significant positive contribution of Syrah and Mourvèdre from Scott Williams of Heart of the Hill and Ranch Vineyards.
