Great post Alice, again!

I just purchased 3 bottles of Hank's very limited 2010 Home Vineyard for my enjoyment when I am back in CA this summer! I will very likely publish a tasting note! I am looking forward even more now!

Cheers!

You'll really love them. The Home Vineyard has a very distinct voice.

Great post. Totally agree with Hank on the myth of lignification.

Alicefeiring

Yes, Jared, I totally agree. The myth of lignification is indeed a myth.

One thing is for sure, I will vigorously test the myth of lignification in my 2012 Grenache Carignane. Thanks for helping me tip the scales in my decision to go whole-cluster.

Alicefeiring

Oh, that Myth! We eagerly await 2012.

Just to correct a little misinformation, the first encounter your wine has with a sulfur compound is during fermentation. Even those beloved wild yeasts produce SO2.

Thanks for pointing that out, but as that's not an 'add' we all assumed.

I'm hunting the Leon Trotskys, the Philip Roths, the Chaucers and the Edith Whartons of the wine world. I want them natural and most of all, I want them to speak the truth even if we argue. With this messiah thing going on, I'm trying to swell the ranks of those who crave the differences in each vintage, celebrate nuance and desire wines that make them think, laugh, and feel. Welcome.
