For those already familiar with Paul Lato, I do not need to tell you that this man knows how to make wine – and can he! Paul is the winemaker at this new venture in the Santa Rita Hills. Only 160 cases of the Premier release were produced. Paul selected the clones for this soon-to-be gem – Pommard and Dijon clones 667, 777, 114, 115 were used in this amazing wine. Those familiar with Burgundy know that Pommard gives it a more inky-like color and density. The various Dijon clones add aromatics, flavors and body.
Everyone always asks me to which wine do I compare a certain wine to – sorry this is a Paul Lato wine and it is awesome. It will stand on its own two legs and you will not regret it. The wine’s aromatics and flavors jump out of the glass, and with Paul’s attention to detail one knows that you are in for a real treat. Hurry because with only 160 cases produced if you blink once it will pass you by. This wine received a 93 Point rating from Steven Tanzer – Parker might be higher!
