2015 Drouthy Neebors
The opaque purple Drouthy Neebors opens with a violet perfume. The aromatics evolve with a ripe dark fruit expression, blackberry, blueberry and cassis. As the fruit opens, Kalamata olive and peppercorns add a savory layer of complexity, which leads further into liquorice and meat. Supple tannins and a fresh acidity gives the wine a nice zest on the finish and a hint of peppermint.
The Drouthy Neebors blend is an assembled wine from four vineyards this year. The majority (70%) is from a new vineyard in Bennett Valley called Bennett Valley Ranch. The remaining 30% is divided equally between our other three vineyards Atoosa's, Samantha's and Moaveni.
