RSM Estate Vineyard, Anderson Valley
After three years of transition, this is our first CCOF certified, organically farmed harvest of the RSM Estate Vineyard. This wine is a mix of Dijon 115, Dijon 667. As a result of the extreme heat we had on Labor Day which delayed ripening, this vintage of RSM is more delicate (less extracted) and lower in alcohol than previous vintages. Elegant and complex showing aromas of raspberry and cherry, forest floor, and cedar. Light to medium in body. Red cherries, cola, mushroom, resinous pine, and hints of clove on the finish. Medium tannins with a lingering finish. Aged for 10 months in all French Oak barrels (33% new).
Cases produced 443, Alcohol 12.9%, Titratable Acidity 5.8 g/L, pH 3.9
