FATHER JOHN 1908 MMXX

$55.00 $55.00

Father John 1908 MMXX is genuinely unique and was made initially as a house-wine for themselves. Still, the vineyard components and craftsmanship were so high that they ultimately decided to bottle a small amount for others. The blend is primarily Pinot Noir and includes Carignan from a vineyard planted in 1908. The fruit spans several outstanding vintages and encompasses some of the top Estates in Mendocino, including Comptche and Greenwood Ridge. They made this wine in a deliciously easy-drinking style that’s impeccably balanced, long, complex, and wildly compelling.

With a winemaking style heavily-influenced by the French, proprietor Nicholas Maloney learned his techniques while making wine in Margaux, Nuits-saint-Georges, Savigny-lès-Beaune, and Chablis. His wines are highly-balanced, terroir-expressive, lower in alcohol, and suited to accompany fine cuisine.

Nicholas sources from maritime-influenced vineyards, and he utilizes whole-cluster fermentation for increased depth and structure. He gently crushes the grapes by foot, which can result in smoother flavors. If you love the Pinot Noir grape and want to try something compelling and unique, this one is for you.

Description

FATHER JOHN 1908 MMXX

“This special bottling consists of a blend of all of our Mendocino vineyards throughout a number of vintages. The reference of 1908 comes from the Feliz Creek vineyard where we sourced a small amount of Carignan that was first planted in 1908 by an Italian family. The wine was harvested and fermented whole cluster and was foot stomped during the maceration. We proceeded to mix this wine with a blend of our other vineyards from Mendocino. This blend rested in barrel until it was finally ready to be released. This is an organic wine and was unfined and unfiltered. 12.5% alcohol.”
