2012 Glos

clusters, captured during harvest

One hesitates to give the cry of "Wolf" once again—at the end of harvest, the Mcdowell brothers assured me that they will allow the few remaining Sauvignon vines of Glos to persist for another year. So the 2012 will not the be the last, but the penultimate harvest from this amazing old-vine vineyard. The wine this year is perfect; the most beautiful since 2009. The fermentation has been very slow, and is just finishing now, during the unexpected cold of winter. The wine remains light and fresh, but is powerful and substantial—the manifestation of the nobility of old vines. 30 cases (our biggest harvest ever!)
