Winemaker Notes: 

"The oldest vines in the highest of places, the tiny berries produce of wine of extreme concentration. The expresive nose is filled with white flower and concentrated citrus: Neroli oil and tangerine. The weight is viscous and oily but with a bright, cleansing acidity. A mineral palate of wet stone and earth.

Cruse Wine Co. doesn't add sulfur until right before bottling, then give the wine another 6-8 months in bottle to come together. Ready to drink now, but could age for another 5-10 years." 

Vineyard:

This wine comes from a completely unique site high in the Sierra Foothills just outside of the town of Murphys. The vines are own-rooted and planted in 1974 in schist soils over a limestone bedrock and was recently purchased by Matthew Rorick and his family. The vine age, elevation, and insanely, rocky soils create incredibly low yielding vines with the tiniest of clusters.

Alcohol: 13.5%
