"The Experiment" G8.1 2011

OVID. Napa Valley

With the 2011 Experiment G8.1, we are trying out one of the simplest and most pleasing alternatives to cork: the glass stopper. The wine contained by this novel glass stopper is a blend of eight different lots of the Bordeaux varietals we grow on the estate. 2011 was a vintage that favored mountain-grown fruit like ours - this blend combines aromatic intensity, elegance and balance, and you can taste the singular place that made this wine.
