Tasting Notes

The artist formerly known as “Novemberlese,” and then as simply “November,” both of which have been used by other growers also, and so it reverts back to its actual site name. It has always been the blue-eyed child in a family of brown-eyes, a kind of neo-classical firm dignified wine, and this ’14 is another iron monument to loess; a puff-pastry sweetness, like phyllo dough you left in the oven twenty seconds too long; boxwood and iris, sorrel and summer savory, salt and chili threads; earnest and less obdurate than in a “normal” year, but still firm and strong, like Delphic columns coated in cream. The actual soil is limestone- bearing loamy sandy silt. – Terry Theise
