/ Nebbiolo Invecchiato Glenrose Vineyard 2008

Sourced from a rare block of Italian varietals grown by our neighbor Glenrose Vineyard, the noble Nebbiolo grape traces its lineage to the Piedmont region of Italy, where it is capable of producing long lived, graceful wines with perfume, density and multi-dimensional qualities.  Glenrose Vineyard, a respected grower in the mountainous terrain of westside Paso Robles, planted these vines some 18 years ago on a series of steep and dramatic south-west facing terraces.  The property shares the chalk-rock limestone soils with Borolo, the epicenter for Italian Nebbiolo. 

Early budding and late ripening are the hallmarks of the grape, attributes well suited to the Paso Robles’ diurnal temperature swings.  The vintage’s minimum rainfall contributed to small yields and high quality.  Whole berries were fermented in open top vats with native yeast.  The wine matured for over 3 full years in neutral (previously used) barrels followed by another year in bottle.  Often closed in its youth with big tannins, the 2008 is coming around, showing classic aromatic elements, a rich fruit core and long finish.  Drink now or cellar through 2018 (conservatively).
