Before the harvest, Ken and Fernando walk the rows together and mark the most flavorful old vines from the original planting. Only the original and healthiest vines are allowed to be included in this limited pick to produce this very special wine. After the careful vine-by-vine selection in the field, classic Ancien small lot winemaking is performed using one gravity-filled fermenter, punched down by hand. 61 cases produced.

Floral perfume notes and exotic spice are at the forefront of this elegant old vine wine. A lovely bouquet of roses and delicate earth intermix with notes of cocoa, berries, sandalwood, and toasted grains to invite your first sip. The fruit concentrates on the mid-palate, revealing subtle notes of earl grey tea. The elegant and luxurious character of this wine shines bright with acidity layered into a silky texture. It finishes with a light, understated grip, and expands to embrace every corner of the palate. Drink now or enjoy increased depth for years to come.
