From an El Dorado County vineyard at 3,000 feet!

Noble Rot.

Deliciously refreshing wine. Definitely SOME sweetness but not cloying in any way. Fantastic piercing acidity-makes this a very fresh wine. There is also that hint of "French Hipster Natural Wine" funk (which I love) which adds a savory/sauvage??? base to the flavor of the wine. Delicious stuff. Also tasted the 2010 Perli (Mendocino Ridge) Syrah, which is beautifully Syrah-ish with that wonderful plum skin flavor I love in good Syrah!
