Roma Vineyard is atop a ridgeline of 1800 ft elevation and is planted with all Pommard clones. Absolutely stunning views as the fruit takes on the coastal breezes from the Pacific as it is located near the town of Booneville. The Akins vineyard is located a bit closer to the coast near just west of Philo on Hwy 128. This vineyard is planted with some of the newer identified Dijon clones of 115, 777, and 667. It is for this reason I chose to homogenize the two vineyards for a nice expression of Anderson Valley. A beak offers a bouquet of red cherries, clove, and strawberries. Plum, cedar spice, cheery, and vanilla oak layers dance as the weight builds and the finish lingers. Aged in 66% new French Oak for 13 months bottled unfiltered/unfined as well. 315 cases produced. Alcohol by volume 13.85%.
