Presently this wine holds much in reserve, but there’s already more density in this vintage than our inaugural one. The coolness of the vineyard site brings a nice mix of savory and fruit driven elements. The nose is an exotic blend of sweet tobacco, camphor, pain grille and purple fruits. Amoenus is higher toned than Materium, due mostly to site rather than acidity. On the palate, red/black fruits with notes of currants, black cherry and cassis are complemented by wet stones, smoke and graphite. The wine turns more open-knit with a day’s decanting, but will be better served by 5+ years in the cellar. We remain very excited by the potential of this site. With more experience we expect this vineyard to rival anything we’ve made to date— Winemaker, Thomas Brown
