2017 Vöcal "Sabroso - Enz Vineyard" Lime Kiln Valley Gros Verdot (Previously $25)

SKU #1365804 Vinous

 The 2017 Sabroso Enz Vineyard is 100% Cabernet Pfeffer, a nearly obscure red variety with Grignolino-like floral and dried herb character. Light to medium in body, this eccentric red has much to offer for readers with adventurous palates.  (8/2018)

K&L Notes

Winemaker's Notes: "100% Gros Verdot & 100% whole cluster fermented native in concrete. 5 days carbonic maceration, aged in neutral barrel for 8 months. This is one of the lost Bordeaux vartieties not replanted after phylloxera. Locally known as Cabernet Pfeffer, these are 35yr old organic and dry farmed vines. The Lime Kiln Valley AVA is known only for the vineyards planted by the Enz family originally in 1895 and 1922. It is an important site for California viticulture and a key expression of how the San Andreas faultline influences the region. The 2016 winter was the year that broke the drought so there was more fruit and leaf growth with healthier production overall and just remanents of vine stress from the drought. 'Sabroso' is a Spanish word that translates to 'tasty.' Enjoy fresh with a slight chill."
