Wine Tasting Notes
Sometimes you need an external frame of reference to reshape ideas - or a new conversation to challenge perceptions.
With this in mind, we decided to purchase a small amount of fruit from a neighboring vineyard. But first, we walked the rows, scrutinized the clone selection and studied the row orientation and trellis setup to learn the why and how of our colleague's site. Their different approach provided us the opportunity to learn and improve what we do here at the estate.
The resultant wine, 2018 Experiment N3.8, is our third vintage from this series. Predominantly Cabernet Sauvignon, N3.8 bursts with notes of cassis, boysenberry, cherry and forest floor. Cocoa nibs, vanilla bean and sandal wood aromas round out this rich and redolent neighborly adventure that is sure to please for years to come.
