Great acidity. Almost savory, with flavors of dried leaves and violets. The firm acids give it a literal mouthwatering feel. Good tannic structure. Blackberries are the dominant fruit, and the finish is of dried flowers and tight tannins and sour cherries. I'm not normally a nebbiolo fan, but really liked this - a good California twist on the classic high acid Italian grape.
With the release of this wine, we begin a string of three excellent vintages for nebbiolo. The vines in our vineyard are maturing, and the biodynamic practices instituted since 2004… well, they couldn’t hurt. Unlike some other New World nebbioli [of which there are scant few], this actually tastes like the real thing - replete with rose petal, tar and that iron-fist-in-a-velvet-glove structure. One of the greatest pleasures of wine appreciation is encountering bottles that taste precisely like their archetype, yet wholly unlike any other example - individual, particular and specific, yet paradigmatic. We are optimistic that nebbiolo may just belong at Ca’ del Solo.
