Like, cooler, just because...

Have you ever had that friend that just made you feel way cooler just to be around them?  That's what this wine is like.  Started by the Mariani brothers in 2007, Scribe has quickly become THE place to visit in Sonoma County.  Vibrant, terroir-driven wines that also happen to be ridiculously delicious and made the right way.  Native yeast fermentation in concrete and neutral oak barrels, unfined and unfiltered.  Available now in Utah for the first time.

Tasting Notes:

 WILD STRAWBERRY, RHUBARB, SMOKE

 VINEYARD: In 2007 we began farming this vineyard one mile from the Scribe Estate. Planted in equal parts with Martini and Pommard clones, the vineyard’s dense Huichica loam soil and the slightly cooler Carneros climate tend to delay ripening until late in the harvest season.

VINTAGE: A dry, warm winter encouraged an early start to the season, with bud break in mid-February. The rainy spring that followed reduced the yields to small, concentrated berries but August heat spikes prompted our earliest harvest yet.

CELLAR: Native yeast started an extended cold fermentation in concrete and stainless steel. After 6 months of aging in both concrete and neutral oak barrels, the wine was bottled without filtration or fining.

Scribe Winery in Sonoma, Calif. produces vibrant, terroir-driven wines. 
The winery–founded in 2007 on a property that pioneered pre-prohibition Sonoma Valley winemaking–is managed by fourth-generation California farmers and brothers, Andrew and Adam Mariani.

Andrew and Adam believe that the best wines are a result of a healthy relationship between man and nature, and that a vineyard managed in harmony with the greater ecosystem results in more site-specific wines that represent a sense of time and place. When vinified with non-interventionist methods, the result is a distinct wine that faithfully reflects what the vineyard naturally expresses.
