VINEYARD DESCRIPTION

Mathis Vineyard - Early Morning, Grenache, Sonoma ValleyMathis Vineyard covers a 7.5 acre plot, situated in the hills above the town of Sonoma, on a warm, south-facing slope. The soils are volcanic in origin, low vigor, with underlying rhyolitic rock. The nearby San Francisco Bay, visible from the vineyard, provides a cooling influence and allows for extended hang time at harvest. The 2014 vintage yielded 2.x tons per acre.

HARVEST

Small, open top fermenters (1.5 ton capacity). Only native yeasts are used (100%). Two to three punchdowns per day. Fermentations averaged xx days in 2014.

TASTING NOTES

The 2014 vintage is one of the best we’ve ever had in Northern California! The 2014 Mathis Grenache is exceedingly rich, showing off the near perfect growing season. The typical jammy aromas of Raspberry preserves are followed by a heady extract of concentrated sweet, black cherry fruit and white pepper nuances. Bold but supple, the wine is a perfect food pairing partner.
