Winery Notes: “ We continue to quietly source from some of the most accomplished growers of Syrah in California. These cool sites where Syrah is neighbored by Pinot Noir, give the varietal a rare depth and complexity. Each vintage we blend small amounts of complementary varietals from Old Vines to complete the wine. These savory characters are so important to us and really shape the philosophy of our wine. Fine, lignified tannins offer a framework which keeps this vintage’s generous nature focused and texturally balanced. Every harvest presents us with a unique set of flavors. The character of Lacuna pivots slightly to highlight the attributes of the vintage without straying from our philosophy. We are genuinely excited about the results this year and hope you enjoy them too.
Tasting Notes: I am proud to introduce another release of Lacuna. This 200 case production was sourced from several revered vineyards in Northern California. Morgan Twain Peterson blended 90% Syrah, 4% Viognier and 3% Carignan and 3% Mourvedre (co-fermented) into a synergy of amazing aromas and flavors. The wine is high-toned with savory and bold aromas of white pepper, rosemary, and black stone fruit that are nestled in the warming embrace of currant and blackberry. This wine has an amazing, lush body with bold black stone fruit flavors that linger on the palate. This wine is well-balanced, although young, shows tremendous potential. I would suggest either decanting, and let it breathe for a good 2 hours, or put it in the cellar for a year or two.
