2014 North Coast Trousseau

Our 2014 release of Trousseau hails from our Healdsburg Estate and the fenceline of our estate vineyards in the deep end of Anderson Valley. The wine is a beautiful marriage of the dark fruited earthy character of Anderson Valley, and the mineral-driven sandstone soil of our Russian River Valley hillside plot. With a light ruby red color, pronounced pink blossoms, Morello cherry, and juniper aromas unfold. A lush, soft palate is delicately layered with fine tannins, which frame flavors of peppered strawberry, pomegranate and Earl Grey tea.

Wells Guthrie has had a long appreciation for the wines of the Jura region of Eastern France. Trousseau is one of the native red grapes of the Jura, but almost unheard of in Californian vineyards. Wells has planted heritage clones of Trousseau grafted to an especially gravelly parcel of our estate vineyard in Healdsburg and the fenceline of our estate vineyards in the deep-end of the Anderson Valley.

The 2014 vintage started dry but abundant February rain came just in time to break the winter drought. Warm spring temperatures encouraged an early bud break that kept vineyard development ahead of schedule through the entire season. Our harvest was condensed beginning September 3rd and concluding on September 24th. For the first time, our Pinot Noir and Syrah harvest overlapped. Abundant sunshine and cool evenings created near ideal conditions for ripe and balanced wines with yields falling in the normal range.
