Planted and organically farmed by proprietor Arturo Robledo and his son Art Jr., this benchland vineyard has multiple clonal selections and is located on Laguna Road, just east of Vine Hill. Five distinct clones, Calera, Mt Eden, 667, Martini, and 828 bring diversity and complexity to the 2011 vintage. This is a single vineyard expression where the sum is greater than the parts.
This second release displays a dark plum core upon pouring that transitions to a ruby halo in the glass. Before even lifting the glass, there is a breeze carrying with it generous amounts of dark raspberries with hints of cedar and autumn spice. The delicate entry gives way to a lush red fruit profile that is typical of the Russian River Valley and gently supported by a finely crafted structure. This vintage is showing more maturity than the first without straying from its promiscuous nature.
