Wine Profile
Harvest Notes
The 2013 harvest season followed the same pattern of excellent quality as the 2012 vintage. Winter brought with itself a vast amount of rain, followed by one of the driest springs and summers in a long time. Harvest commenced about two weeks earlier than average allowing for all grapes to be picked before the arrival of rain. In summary, 2013 was another amazing vintage, providing all elements to make outstanding wines with mature tannins and flavors and aromas that truly show a sense of place.
Vineyard Notes
Roussanne is a white grape varietal from the Rhone region of France, where is often blended with Marsanne. Our Roussanne comes from Bonofiglio Vineyard, owned by Glenn McGourty and his two brothers. This seven-acre organically farmed vineyard is located five miles north of the town of Hopland along the banks of the upper Russian River, and it provides ideal conditions for growing white Rhone varietals that need a long growing season to fully develop flavors and aromas while still retaining their natural acidity.
