Tasting notes

Deep purple-red in color. Dark aromoatic tones of licorice, graphite and boysenberry. The palate feel is full and ripe with cassis, luxardo cherry and cocoa dust. Fine-grained oak tannins provide an anchoring presence and lend a roasted savory note to the long finish. 

Production notes

Il Due means the two and references the Grenache and Sryah in this wine. 

In 2016 we acquired a neighboring property directly adjacent to the upslope from our original Center of Effort Estate. It is a continuation of the lean, sandy soils of our main property, with a thriving orchard of avocado and citrus living frost-free at the top of the slope. This signaled that it was a great area to test the limits of our Edna Valley climate. We knew that in order to reliably succeed with these late ripening varieties, it was mandatory to have just the right combination of aspect and low vigor soils, and to commit to just the right sustainable agricultural practices. Our first release of Il Due, from 2019 vintage received immediate praise from our Insider Members as well as the wine media, and was a great confirmation of our instinct to work with these varieties.
