On the palate, rich flavors of cherry compote and mulled holiday spices are supported by hints of lavender, rosemary and resin from a small amount of whole-cluster fermentation. While there is a smooth, velvety ripeness to this wine, the lingering finish has a grip that bodes well for a long life.
Our relationship with Bill Price started when he purchased Durell Vineyard in 1997, the famous vineyard in Sonoma Valley, we had previously sourced Chardonnay from. Our relationship deepened when he purchased Gap’s Crown Vineyard, one of our favorite sites for Pinot Noir in the Sonoma Coast, where we have been working with fruit from the original plantings. Bill’s commitment to making great wines makes him a fine partner in our journey to create the very best wines possible from the greatest sites in Sonoma.
