Exhibits dark garnet color with leather aromas accompanied by hints of subtle cinnamon and smoked cherry wood. On the palate, notes of lingonberry and dark cherry. Fully integrated and well-balanced, this wine has great tannin with a long, lingering finish.
The Felten Family own and manage fifteen individual vineyard blocks of “Old Vine” Zinfandel that range in age from 35 to 110 years old. Each vineyard is planted in sandy loam soils along the Lodi Mokelumne River Region and up into the Clements Foothills. In 1996, the family began to produce Zinfandel for the bulk wine market, selling wine to a number of prestigious, benchmark producers of Zinfandel in Napa and Sonoma Counties. They have one goal: to produce world class wine.
Vineyard: La Morra
Production: 4,000 bottles
Barolo produced here is best described as “warm-hearted”. Michele’s Barolo Ascheri comes from the classic chalky soils of La Morra about 250 meters up the steep hillside, inter-planted with several types of grasses and beans to aid biodiversity and soil structure. The resulting wine has an enticing nose of flowers, ripe strawberries and dark cherries, and a good mouthful of plummy ripe elegant fruit. This deceptively mid-weight Barolo has a ton to offer.
Vineyard: La Morra
Production: 2,795 bottles
Soil: Limestone, Clay & Sand
One of the most famous and respected vineyards in La Morra municipality. Barolo from La Serra is known for its elegance and freshness. Reverdito’s 2016 La Serra is wonderfully silky and refined yet powerful, with all of the lift that is such a signature of this high-altitude vineyard.
Beautiful red color. Intense nose of cherry and blackcurrant. Fruit-driven mouthfeel displaying the rich aromas perceived on the nose. Long and elegant finish. Great with roasts, white meats, mixed salads, soft cheeses.
50% Grenache, 25% Syrah, 25% Cinsault
A deep ruby red. The nose dances with aromas of black cherries and blackberries, while the alluring palate sings with complex notes of balsam, spices, and wild blackberries. Suggestions of cocoa and mocha anchor the perfectly-balanced ending.
Grenache 40 %, Syrah 60 %
An incredibly expressive bouquet: peony, violet, white pepper, cocoa, eucalyptus and star anise. An impressive palate from the outset with powerful flavour. The body is vibrant, unctuous and sensual leading to a mineral and acid driven finish. With its power and juiciness, Bélandes goes perfectly with braised lamb, roasted rabbit or roast duck.
100% Pinot Noir grown on Kimmeridgian marl and Portlandian limestone. Aged in a combo of 70% wood *Foudres and used 400L barrels) and 30% tank for 12 months.
The terroir of the village of Morogues combined with strict vineyard practices results in a beautiful Pinot that would not be out of place in a tasting of Volnays.
Production: 16,000 bottles
Soil: Marl & Limestone
