(at The Ace Hotel, Shoreditch, 12 Mar 2020)
Drinking Window: 2020 - 2022
Sourced from several low-yielding vineyards across the Sonoma Coast, including the cool western Carneros and Petaluma Gap AVAs, this wine boasts lovely crisp acidity and a more elegant flavour profile, featuring lifted raspberry, pomegranate, lavender and thyme notes. Moderate ageing in neutral, large-format oak casks also ensures fruit purity is to the fore.
