Tasting Notes: Blackberries, plum, eucalyptus
This vintage is already showing signs of sophistication with deep dark fruits, hints of cocoa and fine tannins. This grape - and wine - is foundational to Broc’s history. We’ve made it since 2013, when it intrigued us with what amazing fruit Fox Hill Vineyard in Mendocino can produce. So much so – we purchased the vineyard earlier this year. For us, everything about this wine is special. Nero d’Avola vines are rare sights in California. We are lucky to have Fox Hill Vineyard, where Nero is thriving among the rocky redvine soil. The native Sicilian grape grows well in California soils and especially at Fox Hill where the days quickly grow hot on the exposed rocky hillsides. This vintage was fermented in stainless steel tank, pressed and aged in neutral French oak barrique and a small amount in amphora for 10 months. We recommend aging 10-15 years.
