2017 Paper Street Cuvée

2017 Paper Street Cuvée

In the Willow Creek District lies Paper Street Vineyard. This land was used for barley and almonds until the mid-1990’s but was mostly abandoned until the Dusi family planted vines here. The limestone-white hills, hot days, and cool nights make for concentrated, vibrant, and mineral-driven wines.

VINIFICATION: 20% whole cluster fermented in small, open-top bins, and spent 15-20 days on skins with pump-overs during cold soak and punch downs during fermentation. Aged 18 months in 265-liter neutral French Oak.

TASTING NOTES: Mulberry, macerated figs, Smarties, pine resin, and pen ink on the nose. Fine-grained tannins, blood orange, and chalk combine with a dense, fruit-packed mid-palate. The finish is lively, lush, and lingering. Pair with blueberry duck sausage.
