Aligoté 2016 Barbed Oak Vineyard - Ernest Vineyards



Robert Parker
The 2016 Edaphos Aligote Barbed Oak Vineyard reveals delicate notions of green apples, lemon juice and lime leaves with wafts of wet slate and dill seed. Very light-bodied, refreshing and crisp in the mouth, the palate offers beautiful poise and a quiet intensity, finishing minerally. A lovely example of a well-considered, restrained, soft-spoken style. 148 cases were made.

Sourced from the 18-acre Barbed Oak Vineyard in Sonoma County’s Bennett Valley appellation, this small planting of Aligoté, less than one acre, is known to be perhaps only the second after Josh Jensen’s Mt. Harlan Vineyard.
