Winemaker Notes
*updated February 2024

Ruby red with dried fruits and a forest floor perfume reminiscent of Matsutake mushroom, Herbs de Provence, cinnamon, and vanilla bean. Noteworthy, integrated, and showing elegant age-worthy expression. Aromas that were once bramble are now dried cranberries, black tea, and vintage leather. Baking spice, sweet fruit, and forest floor flavors come alive with earth-driven salinity and lasting acidity. This Ribbon Ridge site's intrinsic structure is still present and constantly changing as it sits in the glass. We recommend allowing this wine to breathe for one hour to enjoy at peak expression. Drink Now-2028.

*notes from original release in 2019

Dark cherry red in color, the 2017 Le Pré du Col Vineyard is gorgeous in the glass. It has an attractive bouquet of sweet baking spices, like cinnamon, cardamom, graham, nutmeg, accompanied with notes of fresh turned earth, pungent dark cherry, cranberries, and citrus oils, as well as an umami, savory and sweet Matsutake mushroom character. It is youthful and taught with bright red fruit flavors, and the salty and sweet dichotomy of the vintage is perfectly framed with fine ripe tannins. This wine has powerful complexity and intensity with juicy, natural acidity. There is a salty, oyster shell type of an expression to the wine and a mushroom character that emerges in the back of the palate. This wine has a lovely textured, tannic finish that will require patience in the cellar but will drink beautifully for many years to come. Drink 2020-2040. Alcohol: 13.8%
