The 2020 Eldorado is a blend of 57% Viognier, 26% Roussanne, and 17% Grenache Blanc. The Viognier is from Ann Kraemer's Shake Ridge Vineyard, grown on a north-facing slope in rocky Sierra uplift soils. The Roussanne and Grenache Blanc are dry-farmed and head-trained, hailing from Ron Mansfield's Goldbud Vineyard, a gentle north-facing slope on an ancient caldera with super-red-lava-pebbly soils. The result is magic.
