Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
"Fruit from vines at a wide range of altitudes, from 1,300 to 3,000 feet, focusing mostly on grapes from Fenaughty and Sumu Kaw. This wine comes across as light and brisk, with a texture that’s just generous enough to mellow the cool spiciness and floral strawberry flavors. Fresh and pretty, it’s a lovely match for chicken liver mousse or most anything on a charcuterie plate." Reviewed by Joshua Greene Wine&Spirits Magazine
Winemaker's Notes
We source grapes from 6 vineyards of various aspects, soils, and elevations ranging from 1300’ to 2800’ to make a wine representative of El Dorado. Nearly one-third comes from Fenaughty in the northern part of the region followed by equal representation from South Fork, Withers, and Sumu Kaw plus a dash of a few other sites as well. The resulting wine is approachable and ready to enjoy upon release.
