Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
The 2015 Northern Spy displays the hallmark aromas of Green Valley: a showy perfume, intense floral notes, fresh crushed blueberry and pomegranate, and a lovely herbaceous note similar to bergamot or black tea. The wine enters the palate bright and lively, offering pure red fruits. The silky tannins seem to glide across the palate leaving a mineral and raspberry note that is long and persistent.
Vineyard Notes
Northern Spy Vineyard’s 17.5 acres of double-Guyot-trained vines are rooted in the region’s famous Goldridge sandy loam soils, comprised of weathered sandstone and granite, with a fine, almost powder-like topsoil. Located in the Green Valley area of the southwest corner of the Russian River Valley, this vineyard enjoys very cool nights and mornings. Fog typically covers the vineyard from 6:00 pm until about 11:00 am during the summer months. Daytime temperatures typically hover in the low-to-mid-80s, encouraging vines that have intensely concentrated, small berries. The cool temperatures and less direct sunlight lead to vines that are harvested up to one month later than the much warmer Amber Ridge Vineyard.
