2016 Ad Lucem DayStar Slide Mountain
We are thrilled to feature our first Mediterranean style blend grown at Slide Mountain by Bruce Morford, a pioneering farmer in the Yakima Valley. Located on a north facing slope high above the Missoula flood plain, the site is rich in volcanic soils laced with compacted clay. This beautiful blend brings together early harvest Tempranillo and Syrah with later ripening Touriga. The result is a deep wine with rich eggplant and raisin hues, savory Worcestershire, dried thyme, dark fruit, violet, bergamot, a streak of mineral and soft, refined tannins.
