from Harrington Wines
AmericanWinery.com is pleased to provide you with Winery-Direct information.
On the nose, notes of cedar, green tea, dried herbs and red berries are evident. The wine opens with opulence, displaying flavors of grenadine, peach pie, cinnamon, and chocolate. The finish reveals a glimpse of the greatness in store for this clone in these ancient soils with complex flavors of buttered toast, gingerbread and a chalky earthiness.
- 750 ml (Standard Bottle): 201
A well-known vineyard in the Chalone appellation of Monterey County, the Brosseau Vineyard is located within a mile of the Pinnacles National Monument. The site is notable for the limestone strata pushed up from a million-year-old seabed by the nearby volcano. While extremely rare in the winegrowing regions of California, limestone is a major soil component in the vineyards of Burgundy.
