2018 Bellows Vineyard
chalk - lychee - nectarine
This is our first harvest from our biointensive vineyard at our home farm at Forge. Our young vines already have the quality level found in Leidenfrost, but in a more restrained style. We believe the Forge estate vineyard is another Grand Cru in our line of lieux-dits wines. This is a broad and long wine with multidimensional flavors.
