Worden Hill

A bouillabaisse of bright red iron, silty clay loam basalt. Rock-Sandy rather than stony, Worden Hill was formed by a landslide of volcanic rock that weathered in place and is now just a couple of thousand years from becoming all top soil. The wine has red and blue fruit flavors from edge to edge with noticeable but thin high tension threads holding it all together in a seamless web.
