We love this because...

Sadly not directly named for one of Shakespeare’s greatest carousers; Falstaff here refers the fog-shrouded vineyard on the extreme Sonoma Coast – From this wild location Jamie produces a wine with superb vibrancy with red fruit in perfect tandem with touches of spice and black tea. Good to go now but will age superbly.

It is only 8.5 miles from the Pacific on the ‘true’ Sonoma Coast and the coldest site in the Kutch range producing very low yields (often less than one ton per acre) which in Jamie’s words means the, “economics are challenged, the quality is bountiful”.

Back in the winery Jamie’s typical style is employed with whole cluster fermentation is used with the amount depending on the vintage with the grapes undergoing a slow gentle fermentation before aging in oak on fine lees until the wine is ready for bottling. The finished Falstaff combines superb tension and energy with concentration and texture in a wine I think many would find it hard to pick blind as Californian.
