Our neighbor directly to the west, the Maresh Vineyard extends upwards of 700 feet in elevation, producing a dramatically differentiated wine from the Winderlea Vineyard.
A surprisingly big wine, it opens with generous and equal amounts of sweet and savory aromatics. Dried raspberry and strawberry continue onto the palate with hints of lavender and sage, dusty cinnamon, and clove.
