Rich acidity, bright, focused aromas of fuji apple and Asian pear, and crushed limestone. The 2020 shows spectacular minerality and a viscous,mouth-filling textural quality.
Sangiacomo Roberts Road Vineyard is located in the Sonoma Coast AVA and is influenced by the fog of the nearby Pacific Ocean. It stays blanketed and cool until mid-day, allowing for gentle ripening. Well-drained, silty gravel soil imparts minerality and a complex richness.
The fruit was hand-harvested at night, then whole-cluster pressed. Barrel fermented, aged sur lie in small lots using new French oak barrels. Partial malolactic fermentation.
