Tasting notes

The 2010 Naches Heights Estate Nebbiolo is the second from Wilridge Vineyard.  2010 was a challenging year for many Washington vineyards.  However, some late warm weather in the fall favored those who were not afraid to leave the grapes hanging as long as possible.  Nebbiolo loves a long cool growing season like 2010 where it has time to gain ripeness but also maintain acidity from cool nights.  The result is a delightful wine that will gain complexity for many years to come.

Nebbiolo is called "The Wine of Kings" in Italy.  The northern Italian locales of Barolo, Barbaresco, Gattinara, Ghemme, and Valtelina make their best wines from 100% Nebbiolo grapes.  In 2011, Wilridge Winemaker Paul Beveridge represented Washington State at the Consorzio di Nebbiolo in Stressa, Italy.  The 2010 Wilridge Estate Nebbiolo was well received at the tastings for the event.
