Franciscan Estate


Amador County Mission 2018

Alder Yarrow

A gift from the past becomes magic of the present, in the hands of @ownrooted. This is a pitch-perfect interpretation of Pais / Listan Prieto, the grape brought north from Mexico by Franciscan friars and planted so religiously (had to do it) at the outposts they established that it simply became known as the Mission grape. At its best, and make no mistake, this bottle is among that company, it offers bright strawberry and sour cherry fruit married to dried floral and herbal notes and shot through with electric minerality. Unbelievably refreshing and delicious. These bottle are crazy scarce, I think my annual allocation as a long time mailing list member is merely one (1), but if you can get your hands on one, it will be worth it. — 2 years ago
