Dundee Hills is known for its rich, red volcanic Jory soils, which were formed from ancient volcanic basalt and consist of silt, clay and loam. They typically reach a depth of 4-6 feet and provide excellent drainage. Signature characteristics of the Dundee Hills include bright red strawberry and cherry notes mixed with warm spice and earth.
The beautiful rolling La Colina Vineyard was our first vineyard holding and it’s been an exceptional site from the very beginning, turning out many of our favorite barrels in the cellar year after year.
2014 presented the perfect scenario for a generous amount of whole cluster in this wine. The power of the vintage absorbed the added tannin while adding necessary tension to the wine. To complete the picture the stems offer an aromatic complexity that rides gracefully on top of the already nuanced La Colina signature of orange peel, tea, and baking spice. Flavors of ripe strawberry and cherry compliment the darker note essences of tabacco and earth. This wine will age wonderfully and gain additional balance and precision.
