This is the 2015 Enfield White Wine "on Skins" Brosseau Vineyard.
Fun tasting at Weygandt Wines with John Lockwood. The second of four wines being poured. Definitely unfiltered and medium to deep yellow. A little floral on the nose with some dirt and honeycombs. Love the mouthfeel and texture, balanced tannins (5.5/10) and acidity (6/10). Dark citrus notes with some hay. Packs a punch with a medium plus body. Just as John says "this wine is like rock and roll". A slight zing in the long finish. Drink till 2020.
This wine is made up of 60% Chenin Blanc and the rest of Marsanne, Roussanne and Viognier. Aged for 16 months in neutral oak on the lees. — 4 years ago
An astoundingly beautiful and elegant California Cab from cool climate Pinot territory. Aroma is high-toned with notes of fresh sweet flowers, crunchy red and black fruit, and minerals. Pyrazine is present from 25% whole clusters, but it contributes white fruit and floral notes rather than strong vegetal character. Only 10% new oak provides some structure, depth, and softens the tannins without obscuring the beautiful fruit quality and this wine’s sense of place. Crystalline acidity is vibrant from the first sip through the long finish. Tasted with winemaker John Lockwood. — 3 years ago
@TheSkip this will be right up your alley.
Fun tasting at Weygandt Wines with John Lockwood. The last of four wines being poured.
Deep ruby red. Layered nose with iron from the get go with some spices, and dark red berries, a nice savory backend as well. Medium tannins (6.5/10) and medium plus bodied. Complex palate with lavender, black cherries, black olives and twigs. Solid acidity with dark gravel in the dry lingering finish. Definitely more of a Northern Rhone style Syrah. Drink till 2026
This wine is made up of 100% Syrah. 100% whole cluster and aged in neutral oak barrels (225L) for 12 months. Only 13.5% alcohol. — 4 years ago
