With beautiful raspberry and Santa Rosa plum aromas complemented by an incredibly fresh perfume, the 2016 Marty’s Vineyard displays all that we love about this area of Green Valley. On the palate, the wine is incredibly silky with very fine tannins and a lovely undercurrent of herbes de Provence. Elegant and supple, the wine seems to glide across the palate, with beautifully integrated fruit, acidity and tannins. Although bright and silky in youth, the 2016 Marty’s Vineyard promises to evolve gracefully over the next three to five years.
Marty’s Vineyard is in the very cool area of Green Valley in the Russian River Valley. It sits high atop a hill overlooking the Russian River Valley and is often blanketed in fog until midday. Sandy Goldridge soils along with the vineyard’s coastal proximity create vines that are balanced, require minimal – if any – water during the growing season, grow and mature evenly, and ripen without seeing temperatures above 88 degrees. The resulting grapes are filled with spicy red fruit notes, elegant tannins, and concentrated flavors.
