Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
Prominent Bing cherry and raspberry aromas give way to subtle plum, pomegranate, clove, earth and floral notes. Dense and juicy upon entry, layers of red fruit expand on the palate, followed by subtle mineral notes and a lift of acidity. The soft, luxurious mouthfeel is balanced by firm, yet fine-grained tannins and a finish that is long and complex. Although beautiful when enjoyed young, this wine shows wonderful potential for aging; layered nuances will be unveiled with time.
Vineyard Notes
Our Graton Vineyard in Russian River Valley’s Green Valley AVA was an abandoned apple orchard that was groomed specifically for EnRoute. We are thrilled with the quality of the fruit coming from this site, which grows on the region’s famous Goldridge soils. Pommard 5, Mt. Eden, Swan, 2A and Dijon clones 115 and 777 are planted on 101-14 rootstock with 4 x 7 spacing in this vineyard. Our Amber Ridge Vineyard is located on rolling terrain in the upper Middle Reach area of the Russian River Valley. Planted with bilateral vertical trellising, the clonal mix includes Pommard 5, Calera and Dijon clones 115, 667 and 777 using 101-14 rootstock to limit vigor. Manzana Vineyard continues to play an important role in the Les Pommiers blend, with its hillside fruit planted in Green Valley to Dijon clones 114, 115 and Pommard 5.
