Aromas of jasmine, lemon, summer wildflowers and an ocean breeze, leading into flavors of chalky, crisp yellow apple, starfruit, pear and some brininess. This is a racy wine presently, with focused vitality. It drinks well now, but should open up even more as the months and years go by.
The quick backstory of Redolent Wine is a vineyard owner (David Polite, Carlton Hill Vineyard) contacted a wine salesman (Boyd Pearson) who enlisted a fermenter (Jon Larson) and a winemaker (John Grochau) to help make a single vineyard Pinot noir. Call it a lucky break. Call it providential. Call it propitious. We just hope you call it delicious! Like the seasons, life comes full circle, and you get through it with a little help from your friends. Redolent Wine is the result of great vineyards and great friendships.
Redolent Wine is a collaboration between Jon and Boyd. Jon has been a fermenter for decades of everything from grapes and grains to cheese and bread to kimchi and kombucha, never stopping his quest for knowledge about the mystical process of fermentation. Boyd is a veteran salesman in the wine industry and a lifelong student of wine and the business of wine, always seeking to learn and taste more. Introducing someone to a memorable wine brings true joy. Jon and Boyd bring all of their experiences to the table to collaborate on every wine they make and continue to push each other through experimentation to try and produce both wines redolent of place and wines redolent of simple pleasure.
