Newly released on February 24th! It is very unusual to find the weather gods smiling such that we can produce an Estate Nebbiolo. Nebbiolo bud break occurs very early, much earlier than Pinot noir and because of this puts itself at risk of late spring frosts which, killing the majority of the primary buds effectively nix the chance of producing a reasonable quantity of wine in that vintage...in 2016 although we had a very early bud break, the weather gradually warmed without incurring any dips, no freezes! Despite a substantial "green harvest", Nebbiolo is famous after all for huge clusters...we harvested enough Nebbiolo for two barrels of wine. Made in a fruit forward manner this Nebbiolo is delectably delicious!
