Nebbiolo, the noble grape of Piedmont in the north of Italy, is the grape variety behind the wines of Barolo and Barbaresco.  Rare in California, it is the only grape we source from outside our Estate.  A close-by neighbor and grape grower, Glenrose Vineyard is the source of our fruit.  Known for its affinity for limestone soils it has real potential here in the Westside hills of Paso Robles.  The grape requires special handling to tame its tendency toward high tannin and acidity.  Light colored due to less pigment from its thin grape skins we treat it like Pinot Noir, maximizing skin contact during fermentation and ageing in previously used cooperage.    

Nebbiolo gets its personality from extended barrel ageing, softening the tannic edge and adding secondary flavors to the primary rose and berry aromatics that are typical of this wine. From a rare cooler vintage in Paso Robles, 2011 mirrors the conditions found in the north of Italy.  The finished wine has a woodsy cherry nose and an earthy, delicate mushroom-hibiscus-like flavor.
