As you wind along Lytton Springs Road into the benchlands that define the southeastern corner of Dry Creek Valley, you’ll glimpse old, gnarled head-trained vines. What you can’t see is the sturdy rootstock reaching deep into those well-draining sandy loam soils, limiting canopy growth that along with a prime microclimate of warm days and colder nights, creates a lengthy growing season. The reward: concentrated grapes, which our source weaves into immensely elegant expressions.
 
To preserve and showcase this epic terroir, our source has been committed to organic viticulture and sustainable production practices since their founding. They apply a low-intervention approach, and Lot 480 was no exception – hand-picked, cold-soaked, punched down manually, then basket pressed into French oak barrels.
 
Boysenberries, cinnamon, and strawberry jam on the nose are accented by crushed gravel, dried herbs, and peach preserves. The entry is focused and dry, showing a beautiful structure that’s more terroir-driven earth than big jammy fruit; new leather and further gravel are kissed by hibiscus overtones, all built around medium acidity and framed by velvet tannins. A dry finish of medium length continues to exude terroir and offers exceptional quaffability.
