(From 2012 Vintage) This wine blends fruit from all the different sections of our 100-acre estate vineyards. This wine truly encompasses the entire breadth of expression at Bethel Heights: the youthful exuberance of the 4-year-old Ingram Lane Vineyard, the vibrancy and freshness of 13-year-old Justice Vineyard, and the brooding, earthy complexity of our old vines that have explored the depths of our soil for more than thirty years.
(From 2011 Vintage) The wine marries place and vintage with effortless grace. Its generous dark cherry and plum scents flow into a seamless, to-the-rim fullness of flavor, grounded by a dark basalt minerality, which seems to give the wine energy and propulsion. The tension between fruit and structure, between grip and give, makes this wine the sort to age--or enjoy now with grilled salmon.
