2019 APERTURE ESTATE 1912 BLEND – SOLD OUT


The own-rooted, head-trained vines, planted in 1912 make up two blocks of the 40-acre estate property. Their yields are minimal, but the quality is breathtaking. This old-vine plot, like many of its era, is not monovarietal but contains a unique and purposeful array of varietals.


“The 2019 Estate 1912 Blend comes from a section of the Aperture estate vineyard planted in 1912 alongside the Russian River in Healdsburg. Still in barrel, it has a medium ruby-purple color and takes time to unwind to aromas of charcuterie, tar, exotic spices and licorice, graphite and earthy touches. The palate offers power and lift with juicy fruits, savory undertones and a pleasant touch of chew.”
91-93 pts – Erin Brooks, Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate
