SAVOURY / EARTHY REDS
2015 LE P’TIT PAPE, P’tit Paysan. San Benito County, California
This apparently comes a limestone and granite based vineyards in five sites in Monterey, San Benito and Santa Clara counties.
Winemaker is Ian Brand, who also makes wine under the La Marea label, and is backed by John Allen of Coastview Vineyard in Monterey. He trained with Bonny Doon Vineyard, one of the first really interesting wineries in the area.
THIS WINE DOES CONTAIN QUITE A LOT OF VISIBLE SEDIMENT. HARMLESS, OF COURSE, BUT DON'T ORDER IT IF THIS WILL BE OF CONCERN.
