This wine is winemaker Tom’s best red! From 110-year-old vines this red is easy to drink with medium tannins and a nice freshness. Notes of cherry, leather, cranberry with an oaky finish.

Pairing Suggestions: Pizza, Grilled Food, Risotto

The vineyards are worked naturally without any chemical aids and Tom is certified organic by Ecocert. And while he does occasionally use biodynamic techniques to activate and nourish his soils, over the years this has become less of a priority. Instead, an adamant dedication to cover crops has completely transformed his soils and in turn the wines. Tom is convinced that the increased insect life within the soils, particularly worms, has changed the flavors of his wines. Another shocking effect: a drastic drop in alcohol. Tom has always harvested much earlier than most, usually starting with the Muscat in early August. In 2005, they would typically reach a potential of 13.5% alcohol. In 2018, they came in around 10.5% - Louis/Dressner Selections
