As treasured fruit source since our first vintage in 2006, the Weber vineyard overlooks our Estate Tasting Room and was planted only two years after Winderlea by Arthur and Vivian Weber.
The 2017 Weber is striking and bright. The aromatics are restrained but bountiful: violets, toasted vanilla, cherry blossom, and a subtle note of bay leaf immediately leap from the glass. A hint of woodiness follows saltwater taffy to the palate where salted chocolate, macerated strawberry, and blackberry meet resolved tannins and delicate, beautiful acid structure.
