Our Cosa Nostra wines are a clear example of our love for all things unique and different. Interesting blends, alternative varietals, relatively unknown regions. We literally want to create ‘our thing.’ Small batches of adventurous experimentation, teamed with our minimal winemaking philosophy to best capture the unique and intrinsic nature of these alternative varietals and blends.
"Whole-bunch pressed to old oak before lingering until a wild ferment kicked in. Malolactic had its way as a softening agent, before 4 months on full solids provided tension and texture. The result is sumptuous. A mid to deep yellow hue portends of what is to come: ripe apricot, bitter almond, lemon and some fennel to toasted nuttiness. Ripe and billowing across the mouth, this is at once a generous wine as much as it is a highly refined one. Richer than its alcohol suggests, this is the by far the finest example crafted from this variety on these shores. My score is for sheer deliciousness and ambition."
