2018 Paper Street Red Wine

2018 Paper Street Red Wine

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

15% whole cluster fermented in concrete and stainless steel tanks and small, open top bins, spending between 20-40 days on skins, with a combination of pump overs and punchdowns during cold soak and fermentation. Blended and racked once prior to bottling. Aged 22 months in neutral 500 liter puncheons and 265 liter barriques, 20% of which were new.

TASTING NOTES

Blackberry, lavender, elderberry flower, hibiscus, sage oil, fennel pollen, blueberry reduction, sweet pepper, and stone fruit.  The palate is very generous and opulent with a catapulting freshness and a persistent ethereal finish.
