Huber Estate Dornfelder Dessert Wine Sta. Rita Hills 2008

Member Review by bamasteve:

My first Dornfelder - so I have nothing to compare it to. But I am not sure I like Dornfelder. Wine is pungent and thick with a bite to it. It got my attention. Sampled in Santa Barbara.

The Huber Estate was established in 1986, and the first vines were planted in 1987, making it one of the oldest vineyards in Santa Rita Hills. The premier grapes of the appellation, Pinot Noir and Chardonnay, are grown on the estate, as is the much sought after German red grape varietal called Dornfelder. Since the first harvest, grapes from the vineyard have been purchased by select premier winemakers throughout the valley. The first wines under the Huber label debuted with the 2000 vintage. Proprietors Norman and Traudl Huber are dedicated to growing grapes of flavor and quality and crafting wines of distinction. All Huber wines are handcrafted in small lots to ensure the highest quality expression of the estate vineyard and the Sta. Rita Hills area. Sta. Rita Hills is a small appellation encompassing just 100 square miles. The cool climate, ocean breezes, coastal fog and the incredible soils of the Sta. Rita Hills area all come together to create the perfect climate for growing exceptional winegrapes that then become the award winning Huber Cellars wines. Of course, the personal commitment to excellence by the talented winegrower Norm Huber, who directly manages the vineyard, must not be underestimated or forgotten. His dedication to quality in every area from soil to grape to finished product ensures that Huber Cellars wines will continue to be a favorite of wine connoisseurs worldwide. So, welcome to our website! Feel free to browse through it and find out more about Huber Cellars estate wines and our Sta. Rita Hills vineyard. Read less
