January, 2007: Family Farm Vineyard is just a few hundred yards from our Home Vineyard. The iron-rich alluvial clay loam soils and eastern aspect combine to create a very unique and complex wine. Soaring nose of mixed red and black fruit laced with complex citrus and scorched earth highlights. Both structured and concentrated on the palate with intense and lingering iron-laden red fruit, orange peel and a touch of oak. We love the intensity and unique complex flavors of this vineyard in 2004. While approachable now, this wine evolves for hours with air and will be at its best in 5-10 years.
