Vineyard: The 2010 Marriage was sourced from the Wurtele Vineyard and the Yverdon Vineyard. They are distinguished by a diversity of mountain terrain and vines that are well adapted to the environment. While the mountain sites present challenges – including accessibility, diversity of soils, ripening, and hand labor – they reward the effort in wine filled with intense flavor and color. Each vineyard, with a unique set of soils, exposures, and microclimates, produces a wine of distinction and personality reflecting the terroir of the estate.
Tasting Notes: Bright boysenberry, cedar, black pepper with kirsch, caramel and graphite notes. Round elegant red fruit on the palate with cocoa espresso notes for a bright and balanced finish.
