Tasting Notes

“Ungrafted vines planted in 1903. Honestly I was lost for words at this point. Did they not make an ordinary wine in 2017?? This is every element of ’17 at its best – and forgive me, but WHERE ELSE can you get an estate-bottled wine from 115 year old vines for this kind of money?” Terry Theise
