2016 Paper Street
In the Willow Creek District lies Paper Street Vineyard. This land was used for barley and almonds until the mid-1990’s but was mostly abandoned until the Dusi family planted vines here. The limestone-white hills, hot days, and cool nights make for concentrated, vibrant, and mineral-driven wines.
Blackberry liqueur, pomegranate reduction, and sweet lavender on the nose. Herb-cured olives and country sausage on the palate with lush, sweet tannins that hold it all together. The finish is mineral-driven with youthful energy. This wine is complex but with nothing hidden; bright, vibrant, and transparent. Pair with black and blue buffalo burgers with bacon jam.
