2015 Montepulciano 12pack (20% discount)
Only 50 cases were produced from 1 ton of grapes picked at 1300 feet elevation in the Yorkville Highland appelation of Mendocino county.
This wine shows the classic side of Montepulciano with bitter chocolate and dusty, tobaccoey notes. There is plenty of tannic structure here but the wine manages to stay light on its feet thanks to moderate alcohol and good acidity. Half of the grapes were wholecluster fermented which adds a bit of peppery complexity.
