Tasting Notes

If you loved the 2014— and if you didn’t we need to send out a search party for your heart— you’ll find this one happy, happy, happy. Stronger than ’14, it’s also both drier and richer. And that’s as it should be; the pittance of sweetness it contains will rise and fall with the structure of each year’s wine, because that’s what sensible vintners do. The others just set up a formula and the wine “has—XY— grams of sugar and zat’s zat.” Nuh-uh, not us. This will always be teasingly dry and teasingly sweet so you’ll keep changing your mind (“Wait, it’s a dry wine, no, it’s a sweet wine, no wait, it’s a dry wine again….”) while the bottle empties faster than you could have imagined. I am very proud of this wine, because it was made in friendship and with a ton of heart, and it’s as smart and yummy as a wine can be. — Terry Theise
