Winemaker Notes
To blend or not to blend? – the question plagues us time and again as we struggle to arbitrate between taste and tradition. Given the nuances of the 2019 vintage and our long-standing tradition of blending our top wine, for 2019 this blend emerged as the strongest version of the Brothers Vineyard. The wine dances with aromatics of violets and cherries, tobacco, cedar and pencil shavings. The palate is a little less strict than other vintages, full and long, generous and layered. This gorgeous wine will be delicious now and for the next 20 years.
