Winemaker Notes

"The first vintage from these venerable vines planted in 1905. Like the Compagni Portis this is a old-field blended white vineyard but the varieties present are completely different. This is composed of Muscadelle, Chasselas, Zinfandel, Semillon, and even a little bit of Chardonnay. I picked everything together (including the red Zinfandel) and whole-cluster pressed it into a mix of old French oak barrels and stainless steel barrels. The wine fermented with native yeasts and ML was inhibited. The resulting wine is certainly unique! Though not as effusively aromatic as the Compagni Portis it possesses uncanny density and lift for a wine that did not see either malolactic or new oak. To be honest it reminds me most of a Marsanne/Roussanne blend. Eight barrels made." – Morgan Twain-Peterson, MW

Critical Acclaim

“(made from a crazy field blend from a vineyard planted in 1905: zinfandel, chasselas, muscadelle, semillon and chardonnay, all of which was picked and whole cluster-crushed together): Bright yellow-gold. Pear skin and peach on the fragrant, floral-accented nose. Broad and chewy in the mouth, offering ripe orchard fruit flavors lifted by a touch of bitter lemon pith. Shows good power and energy on the finish, which repeats the pear skin and lemon notes.” – 90 Steven Tanzer’s International Wine Cellar
