2017 Lawler Ranch Vineyard
The Lawler Ranch vineyard is located on Ramal Road just east of our Tula Vista vineyard. The defining feature of this wine is its savory character.
This wine exudes youthful exuberance and energy. It is delicious now, but one need not be overly optimistic to see the aging potential. Leaping from the glass are notes of sassafras, rose petal, and boysenberry. The palate has a mouthwatering, juicy quality, with black raspberry, lingonberry, and plum clafouti backed up additional notes of baking spice. The blend enjoyed a full fifteen months of barrel age; 50% newly coopered French oak from Cadus and Francois-Frères.
Varietal: 50% Pommard, 50% Dijon 667
