Overview

This vineyard is located on Dry Creek Road directly across the street from the winery.  It is farmed by Randy Peters, who was born on the property and is named after his late mother, Pauline. It is planted in the famous Cortina soil from the Grenache Noir clone with rootstock 101-14.

Tasting Notes

After harvesting at 22 brix and a whole berry press, we maintained a cool fermentation in stainless steel, which allowed us to retain the fruit’s natural character.  The subtle hue and aromas of watermelon and strawberry introduce the senses to this wine.  Melon, peach and strawberry juice explodes on the palate with hints of minerality, vibrant acidity, and a long mouth-watering finish.
