The 2019 vintage is remarkably polished and fresh - one of our team's favorite years to date! Early in the growing season there was great rainfall that helped to establish a nice cover crop. The summer season started out cool but ended with consistently warm temperatures lasting from July through October allowing for optimum photosynthesis. We believe our passion for organic farming compiled with hard work, without cutting corners, shines through in these wines and we are anxious for you to try them.
2019 MY FAVORITE NEIGHBOR $50

The 2019 My Favorite Neighbor features a complex nose of red cherry, current and raspberry along with wild herbs, violets, and just a hint of toasted marshmallow. On the palate, generous flavors of black cherry, ripe plum, and fig compote is joined by notes of medium roast coee and crème brûlée. The extremely long and mineral finish is characterized by a hefty structure and luxurious, silky tannins.
2019 HARVEY + HARRIET $30
