2021 Reverie Reserve

2021 Reverie Reserve


Bask in the Reverie!  This is an extended aged version of the first bottling of this vintage.  It sat in new French and American barrels for 20 months.  The previous botting of this vintaqe earned Double Gold as did the 2020 vintage.  The first bottling of the 2021 also earned 95 points.


    Excellent fruit expression with the balance of refined oak.  The barrel imparts a richness and elegant aroma without overwhelming the other flavors.  The French winemaking style is evident with the nice mouthfeel and lingering finish. 


    The hard working manual harvest team started at 12 AM and was finished before sunrise.   The fruit was then immediately placed in the well chilled winery.  This was done to keep the grapes as fresh as possible and capture the desired sugar / acid profile.  Unlike the previous year, Mother Nature was kind to us winemakers with nominal temperature and no fires.


    Whole cluster pressing followed by barrel fermentation and sur lie aging for 20 months (sitting on the yeast lees to promote wine stability and enhance creaminess without becoming buttery).  The extended aging and the time on the lees results in a richness and creaminess.  The qulaity of these barels and the nature of the fruit resluted in a balance of oak aroma, lingering finish and rish fruit.
