TASTING NOTE:

The 2020 Limited Release Napa Valley Albariño has enticing aromas and flavors of lime zest, grapefruit, pear cider with floral notes.  On the palate, our Albariño is crisp, vibrant and refreshing.

WINEMAKER'S NOTES:

Our Albariño is grown in a single vineyard block located in the hills overlooking the San Pablo Bay in the southern Napa Valley.  This vineyard is heavily influenced by the wind and the cool climate.  The wind causes the vines to focus on producing flavor, not sugar, resulting in a highly concentrated wine with low alcohol.  The cool temperatures of the area help the grapes retain a high level of their natural acidity.

The 2020 was a challenging one marred by multiple major fires throughout the growing season in the Napa Valley.  Leading up to Fall, the vineyards were looking incredible with great balance and perfect fruit.  We were fortunate enough to harvest many white grapes earlier than usual and avoided any impact from the smoke and fires.  The resulting wine is bright and fresh at a lower alcohol than we have seen in different years.
