Producer notes: "100% Trousseau. Pete Stolpman and Rajat Parr's esoteric partnership 'Combe' means a 'small sheltered valley within a vineyard' in French. When Rajat Parr began making Sandhi Chardonnay alongside Stolpman in the Lompos Wine Ghetto back in 2010, he immediately started a campagne to plant Trousseau on Stolpman's Ballard Canyon limestone soils. Vignerons in Jura seek out limestone for their Trousseau plantings, and Rajat theorized that Trousseau, a varietal that often has difficulty achieving ripeness, would flourish in the sunny, arid Ballard Canyon wind tunnel. 50% whole cluster. Tasting Notes: Inviting lavender and milky Earl Grey tea ride a rhubarb bridge over surging ruby red grapefruit. All the while, Combe Trousseau's steadfast savory undertone--dried herbs and soil--gives a layer of seriousness. Bursting firm cherries and a bright sun-kissed playful mouthfeel carry through the crusading citrus undercarriage before being washed over in the crunchy, high-acid finish. 525 cases produced. Alcohol 12.5%."
