Promontory 2013

Due to the complexity of soil, exposure, and elevation at Promontory, nearly 42 passes were made through the vineyards resulting in 30 distinct vinifications. These were aged independently in barrel for almost a year before blending, and then entered the large Austrian oak casks to finish ageing over the next few years. The final composition displays complex and diverse aromas, with no single primary scent standing above the rest. Some of the more subtle facets are beginning to surface: wet stone, graphite, leather, and fresh spices. Brighter notes create a tension in the nose that then transfers to the palate. In the beginning it is gentle and silky, developing slowly and purposefully into a synthesis of minerality, freshness, and vibrancy. The wine shows its potential for ageing with a balance of structure and lightness, as well as a latent potential only to be revealed with time.
