Impressions | a wine as mad as the Sirocco, complex as a lover's words, dramatically bright as Van Gogh, unfathomable as your soul.
Nutrient-deficient sandy soils cause the vines to struggle, yielding wines with greater concentration, and intense aromatics. South-facing slope. Proximity to the Pacific Ocean. Excellent, even growing season. Small yields and intense berries.
Minimum skin contact, slow fermentation in a cooled, jacketed tank.
Aged sur lie with battonage for 5 months in neutral french oak
the perfect wine for smorgasbord! Pairs exuberantly across the board. Oysters with orange mignonette, meat dishes with fruit, chicken tikka masala, bbq fare, duck mole!
LXV flavor Pairing | “A Foil” - apple, apricot, hibiscus, cranberry, orange peel, honey, nutmeg
