VINTAGE - 2009

APPELLATION - SONOMA VALLEY, SONOMA COUNTY, NORTH COAST, CALIFORNIA.

VINEYARD NOTES:-
The Kivelstadt Vineyard has been farmed organically since it’s planting in 1999. The nine acres has been cropped to an average of only about 2 tons per acre and produces a wine whose signature is a unique reflection of this favorable, cool climate site.

WINEMAKERS NOTES:-
There are four clonal selections in this ten acre site that sits on eastern side of Sonoma Mountain: Syrah Noir, Alban, Durrell and Bien Nacido. The soil is like a marble cake of red volcanic soil and decomposed volcanic ash. The grapes are hand harvested and primarily destemmed with a small amount of whole clusters going into 1 to 3 ton open –topped fermentors. The must was cold soaked for 5 days. A combination of punch downs and pump overs are utilized. The wine is pressed at dryness and put to barrel for 15 months.

TASTING NOTES:-

Lavender and ripe stone fruits jump out of the glass. This is followed by notes of cocoa, brambly fruit, dark chocolate and roasted meats. A smooth entry leads into depth and concentration on the mid-palette. Fine tannins pull it all together with a lush lingering finish.
