Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
Lovely nose, intense and floral, reminiscent of Meyer lemon and orchard fruit like pear and apple. The palate is fresh and elegant, intense and mineral, with nicely framed oak and a touch of vanilla; the mouthfeel is creamy and long, with notes of biscuit, pie crust and meringue. Delightful to drink right now but it will continue to develop and last for at least 15 to 20 years. I would recommend serving it at 46°- 48° F.
Vineyard Notes
The Don Miguel Vineyard: Named after the late patriarch of the Torres family, this sustainable vineyard is located in the Green Valley — the coolest, foggiest region of the Russian River Valley, only ten miles from the Pacific. Planted in the European-style high density of over 2,000 vines/acre, the yields are low and labor is intensive; but the vines live longer and the grapes acquire better balance and greater concentration, as well as more elegance and finesse.The blend of clones in this vintage is 45% Rued, 34% See, and 21% Spring Mountain
Production Notes
The grapes were harvested September 1 - 11, then gently whole-cluster pressed and barrel fermented, using our own indigenous yeast, in premium French oak barrels, 33% new; they were coopered by Damy from the forest of Allier and by Mercurey from the center of France. After undergoing 100% malolactic fermentation, the wine was aged on its lees for nine months and bottled in August 2021.
