The Winery

Vineyard 29

Vineyard 29 employs the most careful, patient (albeit time-consuming and labor intensive) techniques to create wines that fully express the potential of their vineyard heritage — their terroir. Applying the Old World theory of “elevage” — raising each vintage as one would raise a child — means giving the vines and the wine alike the height of gentle care and attention. By expressing this care, we strive to create a final product that is the highest representation of the vineyard and the climate in that year. Every piece of advanced machinery at Vineyard 29, beginning in the vineyards, enables us to treat our grapes with tremendous care, thus adhering to old world winemaking ideals through use of advanced modern technologies.

Tasting Notes

V92
Bright medium ruby-red. High-pitched aromas of cassis, violet, licorice, bitter chocolate, cedar and cardamom, plus a whiff of leather; smells a lot younger than 20 years old. Plush, ripe and sweet in the mouth, with flavors of cassis, cocoa powder and spices nicely framed by harmonious acidity. Finishes brisk, suave and persistent, with fine-grained tannins nicely supported by saline extract. Very well-judged extraction here--not to mention strong starting material.
