The ‘17 Sequitur Vineyard (Mike Etzel, Beaux Freres’ private vineyard) is a  50 case gem!   This single vineyard Sequitur bottling is a two barrels composite. Half of the composition was Clone 943, 100% destemmed and fermented in a terracotta amphora. This produced a luscious wine with ripe blue fruit and sweet earthy tones mixed with just a hint of red terracotta texture.  This was blended with a  50% whole cluster fermented barrel. The wine offers up a great nose of bright red fruit and berries – hints of cherry aromas are  supported by a hint of spice and a touch of sweet vanilla. Purity and finesse from start to finish. This youngster is medium to medium full in body with silky grained sweet tannins.
