For Dierberg and Drum Canyon Vineyard we witnessed remarkable concentration and freshness that is the goal of every estate every year. With full flavors but higher acidity the wine veiled at first glance, but reveals subtle complexity which we've come to appreciate from Dierberg Vineyard: pear, citrus, and an almost fennel-like aromatic element. The palate is fresh but not without a generous mid-palate texture. The mouth feel seems to beg for a bit age so that it sees weight added to its excellent frame. The length suggests age ability. Enjoy!

Wine EnthusiastThere is a lot of pent-up energy on the nose of this fresh and zesty bottling, which shows aromas of key lime, tangerine, wet stone and a hint of nectarine. The palate is overloaded with citrusy flavors, from Meyer lemon peel to grapefruit pith, but there is also baked-apple warmth at its core.

Wine Spectator Fleshy apple and Bosc pear flavors show some stony notes, with dried savory herb details on the crisp finish. Drink now through 2021. 2,837 cases made.
