Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
The 2015 Renegade Ridge Vineyard opens with alluring aromas of dried blueberry and candied raspberry, highlighted by sweet notes of confectionary sugar and cream cheese icing. The palate is generous, expressing hints of juicy mandarin with subtle touches of bittersweet chocolate and crushed tarragon that lead into a long, smooth finish of blackberry liquer, supported by silky tannins and rounded acidity.
Vineyards
Renegade Ridge Estate is a 12-acre vineyard contiguous to our Archery Summit Estate vineyard in the Dundee Hills. Soils are basaltic Jory and the vines are planted between 315 and 480 feet in elevation. On this, our only predominately east facing slope, Dijon clones are matched to select rootstocks and exhibit pronounced aromas, bright flavors and elegant texture. This vineyard has been farmed utilizing biodynamic principles and practices since March 2004.
Winemaking
Fruit for the 2015 Renegade Ridge Estate was hand picked on September 12th. The fruit was hand sorted and soaked cold for six to ten days, after which native yeast fermentation was allowed to proceed under temperature-controlled conditions in wooden open top fermentors. During primary fermentation, tanks were punched down up to two times per day. After limited post-fermentation maceration, the wine was sent via gravity to 55% new French oak barrels and aged for eight months prior to bottling.
