Pair this wine with a summer salad that consists of baby arugula, shaved fennel, cherry tomatoes, roasted corn, tossed and a lemon-honey dressing and topped with fresh burrata!

Super expressive aromatics of lemon drop, flint, orange blossom, and quince lift out of the glass; this wine smells as delicious as the fruit that came in the door! Thirst quenching and refreshing acidity.
Brooks has it all — Great story, great people, great wines.

Vintage Notes

A wet and cool April delayed bud break, but by bloom, we were quickly caught up to average tracking for the season. Summer was steadily warm but without heat spikes or temperature extremes experienced in 2016 and 2017.
By mid-September, the vines became weary from much sun and not much water and began to shut down causing ripening to stall. A brief rain event and cool down gave the vines the respite and harvest the jumpstart it needed.
We picked Pinot in a concentrated two-week window running until October 10. The Riesling, however, enjoyed an extended spell of sunny but cool autumnal weather that was perfectly ideal for beautiful ripening lasting through October 22.
The resulting wines from the season are vibrant, fresh, and full of concentrated flavor.
A hallmark vintage!
