Sitting at 860 feet in elevation, Black Walnut slopes south and is a well-structured soil of loamy weathered basalt, pebbles and sand. Highly oxidized the soil is a rich iron red color without as many pebbles as the “Red Dust” but is all eroded parent rock material with some sparkling crystals fragments dancing in the eroded rock. The embrace of this wine is soft and inviting and with a respectful pause before it reveals its details and complexity. 205 cases produced.
About the Wine Maker
Rose and Arrow Estate wines are a philosophy turned into a project involving some of the world's most talented people in the viticulture and oenology. Meticulous study and development of the terroir by Pedro Parra, bio-dynamic viticulture combined with the winemaking expertise of Bourgogne hot-shot Louis-Michel Liger-Belair resulted in some of the most exciting and outstanding wines made in the USA. After years of experimentation and improvements, 2017 is the first vintage that Rose and Arrow has been made available outside the USA. Each of The seven cuvées are singlular and expressive, eachwith their own character, specific structure and minerality.
