沒聽過? 沒關係我跟你講! 2000 開始~ 2003 First Vintage, VERY small production… 可是釀酒師講出來真的都會嚇死人~~
ANDY ERICKSON – 他的釀酒經驗是從 Harlan 開始~ 2006 年開始代替了 Heidi Barrett 成為了加州最Cult 的 Cult Wine 酒的釀酒師~ 沒錯! 就是 Screaming Eagle. 除此之外也在 Dalla Valle, Hartwell, Ovid Arietta 等等的有名酒莊釀酒~
Michel Rolland - 這位真的不用解釋啦~~要開始寫可以寫一本說~我想能形容他的一句話就是 “Every wine he touches turns into gold”
David Abreu – 加州酒咖應該對他也很熟悉~ 1980 開始曾經待過 Caymus, Inglenook, 也在很多有名的 Napa Winery 做過 management (for grapes) Blankiet Estate, Colgin, Pahlmeyer Vineyard, Sloan Estate, Bryant Family Vineyard Araujo Estate Wines, Grace Family Vineyards, Viader Vineyards, and Harlan Estate 寫都寫不完啦!
這款 Dancing Hares 這幾年來越來越受矚目, 越來越難找~~價錢也有在逐漸上升的一個 Feel~
最後來一個 Video for 酒莊介紹~~ https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7D6AwyMEn0E
2014 Dancing Hares continues the tradition of an elegant Bordeaux blend. Sourced primarily from a small vineyard on Pritchard Hill and blended with our estate fruit, the wine is an elegant expression of two of Napa Valley's premier appellations. Aromas of plum and blackberries are balanced with a floral bouquet ending with cocoa and spice. The mouthfeel is full and lively with soft tannins and a silky finish. We are proud to add Pritchard Hill to our cherished group of fruit sources and believe this partnership creates a wine for the ages.
95 points Vinous
Dark red and bluish hued fruits, crushed rocks, mint and licorice all make an appearance in the 2014 Dancing Hares, a wine endowed with considerable energy. Today, the 2014 is raw and not fully formed, but it is impressive just the same. Lavender, cloves, mint and crushed rocks inform the tense, pulsating finish.
