The famous Yamhill Carlton vineyard was planted by Dick and Deidra Shea on its own roots in the late 1980’s. Like Burgundy’s Clos de Vougeot, it’s large enough that we can experience it in the hands of several great winemakers, and Grant and Renée manage to plumb its depths while retaining elegance. They work with a one acre plot on a south/southwest-facing hillside. The vines, dry farmed, are planted in ancient sandstone. 14% alcohol.
