These vines are part of the original plantation by Charlotte Young in 1971. The 2022 vintage marks these vine’s 51st harvest. This wine comes from the far western side of the property, and while the rest of the old vines in the vineyard have reasonable 3ft shoots, and moderately sized clusters, the “peripherie” row has sometimes 10ft long canes sprawling onto the floor and often football sized clusters.
This is a fresh but serious expression of Ibarra-Young Vineyard, delicate yet fairly formal. A wild one like a mélange of freshly harvested fruits from the garden, peeled and prepped for your seasonal jam making. Light, alive, easy, crushable.
